Is this something that the PathPrefix[1] attribute would help with, to 
make the action relative to the current namespace?  E.g. create a base 
class for your athlete class, something like:

     package MyApp::Base::Controller::Athlete;
     use base 'Catalyst::Controller';

     sub diary : Chained('/') PathPrefix Args(1)
         my ($self, $c, $action) = @_;
         my $athlete = $self->path_prefix;
