assuming you had:

<input type="text" name="person" value="John"/>
<input name="sport[]" type="checkbox" value="baseball">
<input name="sport[]" type="checkbox" value="basquetball">
<input name="sport[]" type="checkbox" value="football">
<input name="sport[]" type="checkbox" value="hocket">

then:

foreach($_POST['sport'] as $value)
{
  $sql = sprintf("INSERT INTO `Atletes`(`personId`,`sportName`) VALUES('%s','%s')"
                ,mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['person'])
                ,mysql_real_escape_string($value)
                );
}

it will take different rows in the database right?like baseball in one row then basketball in the second row

correct

but this might be better:

<input name="sport[3][]" type="checkbox" value="baseball">
<input name="sport[3][]" type="checkbox" value="basquetball">
<input name="sport[3][]" type="checkbox" value="football">
<input name="sport[3][]" type="checkbox" value="hocket">

<input name="sport[7][]" type="checkbox" value="baseball">
<input name="sport[7][]" type="checkbox" value="basquetball">
<input name="sport[7][]" type="checkbox" value="football">
<input name="sport[7][]" type="checkbox" value="hocket">

where 3 and 7 are the corresponding personId. So to do the insert:

foreach($_POST['sport'] as $personId=>$sports)
{
  foreach( $sports as $value)
  {
   $sql = sprintf("INSERT INTO `Atletes`(`personId`,`sportName`) VALUES('%s','%s')"
                ,mysql_real_escape_string( $personId)
                ,mysql_real_escape_string($value)
                );
  }
}

and will you please help me in displaying the value from the database too,

all you have to do is to execute a select statement:

$result=mysql_query("SELECT personId,sportName FROM Athletes") or die( mysql_error() );
while($row=mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
{
  echo sprintf(PHP_EOL.'<div><input type="textbox" name="sport[%s][]" value="%s"/></div>',  $row['personId'], $row['sportName'] );
}
