look up any word, like bae:
A couch potato who is heavily into virtual sports, i.e. computer golfing or computer football.
He can't run 10 meters without collapsing but he brags about how he won the 99 World Cup - on his screen. He's such a cyberathlete.

Someone with such exceptional skills at computer games that they are considered a professional, competes in tournaments for great sums of money, and may represent his/her country in some sort of Multiplayer Olympics. Athlete is used in its broadest possible term here, as they are not known for their physical strength or ability. May possibly be referred to in the near future as "CyberAthl33t".
"That guy is a athlete? Are you sure, he looks like a nerd, only somehow even geekier!?"

Get off of your fucking ass and stop trying to use excuses to call yourself an athlete.
