So, an athlete is seen from this position surely as 3rd house also represents hands, efforts and hobbies. So, in combination it indicates sports. Besides that, as Virgo is sign for disputes, this position can make someone lawyer, as a person is looking to win disputes through his communication. Both positions of Mars in Ascendant will give that extra courage to fight the battles of life.
Mercury - Mercury also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Aries Ascendant - If it is Aries Ascendant, Mercury rules 3rd & 6th houses and sits in 1st house in Aries. This person is surely in the work related with communications and pursuing his hobbies as his career. Siblings would shape person's life. This person will be very direct in his communication and won't mince words. They can make their career in writing, speaking or any creative skill they are interested in.
Cancer Ascendant - If it is Cancer Ascendant, then Mercury rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 1st house in Cancer. Everything written above regarding Mercury applies here too. In addition, they can be people who are looking to resolve the disputes of people by their communications. They can work as diplomats and peace-makers. If they go into writing, their work will revolve around emotions and romance.
Venus - Venus also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Pisces Ascendant - If it is Pisces Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 8th house and sits in 1st house in Pisces sign, where it is exalted.

They have feminine personality, even guys would have the same. They are very much into serving others with devotion.
Leo Ascendant - If it is Leo Ascendant, Venus rules 3rd & 10th house and sits in 1st house in Leo. Another position where person will be very beautiful and creative but not as much as exalted Venus. Planet of Creativity is in the sign of Creativity, so creativity will be part of life path. They can be very good actors and performing artistes. In both the cases, they will be highly attractive.
Jupiter - Jupiter also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs. So, let's take both one after the other.
Libra Ascendant - If it is Libra Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 6th house and sits in 1st house in Libra Sign. It shows someone who is a Lawyer as Libra is sign of creating balance and Jupiter is written Law. It shows a person who desires to create a balance in society through his communications. In any position of Jupiter in Ascendant, person is seen as very wise in society. People will always come to them for advice. Jupiter in Ascendant can cause obesity in Jupiter MD.
Capricorn Ascendant - If it is Capricorn Ascendant, Jupiter rules 3rd & 12th house and sits in 1st house in Capricorn, where it is debilitated. And this is the beauty of Jupiter, even a debilitated Jupiter will end up in blessing you one way or the other. Yesterday, I posted Barack Obama's horoscope and he has the same position. Do I need to say anything more?
Saturn - Saturn also can be 3rd house ruler through its two signs.
In either sign (Capricorn/Aquarius) as 3rd house lord, Saturn in 1st house (for Scorpio/Sagittarius Ascendants respectively) shows that person will have to go through lots of hardships in his life path. He will get success only when he puts his best effort. Normally, they get success only after mid 30s. They can be great writers and would like to write lengthy books and novels rather than small blogs or articles. They work very hard on their communication skills. Everything in life will come only after going through Rough and Tough timings. But as always, Saturn only delays, it never denies. So, if person is willing to put all the hard work, Saturn blesses the person with more than he ever thought.
Rahu - If Rahu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Aquarius, as it co-rules Aquarius along with Saturn, and sits in 1st house in Sagittarius then 1st of all we need to make sure of Saturn's position as it is the main ruler. Rahu in Sagittarius in 1st house shows a person who is highly obsessed with religion and different philosophies of the world. He has immense expectation from himself and desires nothing but the best for himself. As Rahu is in the sign of religion, they have the most weird religious views/beliefs. They can call upon you to prove that Holy Books are actually the word of God.
Ketu - Likewise, If Ketu is 3rd house Lord through its sign Scorpio, as it co-rules Scorpio along with Mars, and sits in 1st house in Virgo then 1st of all we need to make sure of Mars' position as it is the main ruler. As Ketu isolates/separates a person from the things related to the house Ketu is sitting, here it actually separates person from himself, which means these people have lack of self-value or self-worth. They feel that other people are more blessed than them. As Virgo is sign of obstacles and conflicts, these people stay away from any type of controversy. They are blind about themselves, means they never realized their own potential. Their communication style is more spiritual.
Hope this covers maximum points and is helpful.
