why not set up a quick test site to find out? it'll only take 5 minutes.

personally, i wouldn't go for adding hyphens or any other kind of
meaningless symbol to your terms as it will only serve to confuse your
users & visitors and increase the chances of human error.

it also seems very clear to me that you are trying to squeeze two different
types of data into one taxonomy (sports and sportspeople), where using two
taxonomies would be much more semantically correct, easier for your users
to understand and less prone to problems.
