An athlete that declined in stamina (energy), status, position, dignity, quality, that is became lower or less in any of those aspects. Could be even an athlete that fell in disgrace, I mean, the one that got forgotten, maybe out in a limbo.
Without much context I would risk to say that it can be a figure of speech (that is, taken in a non-plain English sense). In that case, it could be an athlete chosen from a group to be offfered as a scapegoat, to teach others athletes a lesson.
This one I made analogy with the ''fall guy" - bode expiatório. But, let´s wait confirmation, or any sort of comment.
