Volume of Oxygen used by athlete versus non-athlete

Question: Would an athlete use more or less oxygen than a non-athlete while at rest?

Scenario: Two girls are floating underwater. They are hostages, and the bad guys have place scuba tanks on them to keep them alive. They're tied down and unconscious. The basic difference between the two girls is that one is an athlete and the other is not.

Research: I've talked to a family doctor and done a google search. All we can figure out is that the athlete will use the oxygen more efficiently while doing exercise but not while unconscious.

So, help!
