Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Athletic persons usually have a low heart rate in ranges of 45-60/min.
Still you should get evaluated by a local physician about the rhythm- get an ECG and also get the BP checked which should be in normal range.
I think it would not cause any major problem and is just a normal variant.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
