An athlete who participates in track
. Additionally can be defined by extreme dedication and athleticism. Not to be confused with a jock
, the tracklete is a true athlete
and does not brag or talk shit before or during competition, opting rather to just win and let his or her actions do the talking. Often given a hard time by jocks who play team sports (which is a minority, as most participants of team sports are athletes) the true trackletes are never really insulted or disrespected out of overall admiration for their efforts and/or skills, which the jocks realize they cannot truly begin to compete with.
