In brief: Not impossible
Wpw can be associated with a risk of sudden death in some patients so a blanket answer is inappropriate.
For an individual with WPW an evaluation by a cardiologist or electrophysiologic cardiologist may indicate either high or lower risk. An ablation procedure to remove the WPW may minimize the risk of sport if there is a great drive to participate.
