In brief: Probably not

Sexual tensions if relieved prior to sproting activities could be beneficial.
If one has prolonged sex and tires themself, this could reduce sports performance. Unless your are a competetive athlete at a high performance level, consider the pros and cons and make your best judgement. I would doubt any serious deleterious effect.

In brief: No proof of affect

To my knowledge there is no clear proof that sexual activity either benefits or thwarts sports-related performance.
