What about athlete=atleta? (e should be long e)

Yes, "atléta" is also a good translation. But in Hungarian it usually means somebody who performs one or more of the sports in athletics. Track and field, running, walking, jumping, throwing.
The English term "athlete" may be more general, referring to any sport.
Correct me if I am wrong.
