In brief: Yes
On a low protein diet body burns the muscle for extra calorie needs - like sports activity so is important to balance the diet for increased body needs.

In brief: Athletes need protei
Absolutely! there is absolutely no sense to be on a low protein diet.
Protein is the corner stone of any diet. Protein is the most important part of any meal. Without protein, you will break down muscle, have no ability to heal, and become weak. Protein makes you strong. No athlete can have success on a low-protein diet.
