Are athletes considered to be celebrities?
- Nico RobinLv 52 months agoFavorite Answer
Well, you first need to understand the difference between a celebrity and an athlete. A celebrity is someone that is famous for something. An athlete is someone who is good at sports and physical activities. That is it.
There are athletes that aren't popular and there are celebrities that aren't athletes. Being an athlete doesn't mean you're a celebrity.
As for the question, I'll say that a number of athletes are considered celebrities.

Yes, the biggest one are definitely celebrities.

even if they are not well-known elsewhere.
