Per NCBI, "Intense exercise may cause heart remodeling to compensate for increases in blood pressure or volume by increasing muscle mass. Cardiac changes can involve not only the left ventricle, but all heart chambers." Your best option is to consult a cardiologist. They can explain in detail the results of the echocardiogram and if there are any concerning changes.
