Is it possible to become good at a sport at age 15?

Is it possible for someone to become a world-class sportsperson if they begin to play sports at age 15 ,having no prior experience?

I understand that 15 is often considered late to begin playing sports. However, I want to know if it's possible for me to become a professional sportsperson if I start at age 15 with no prior sporting experience.
What sports would you recommend?
Is it possible?

Thank you in advance 😊
Good? probably, world class? unlikely *shrug* will depends on so many things.
For so many sports I can say one thing for sure: to be world-class as a pro, you need to begin with in young ages. And 15 years is definetely too late.
I’d say so mabye if u have never tried it before some people have natural talent like i know some Olympic athletes even started as late as 17 albeit its rarer

To become world-class would be outstandingly unlikely
