Impossible to answer. The Mayan civilization had atheletes that competed for sacrfices to the gods. The pay seems to be horrible, but it fits the definition. Who's to say that other cultures didn't do the same? The Olympic games go back to the BC era, and some of them were supported so that they could train full time for the games. This too fits the definition.
