Though there are some exceptions, most adult Olympic athletes are hardly neophytes at the sports in which they compete; they likely enjoyed the same activities as a child.

A) they likely enjoyed the same activities as a child.
Wrong. "they" + "as a child" ==> Not parallel.

B) they enjoyed the same activities as a child.
Wrong. "they" + "as a child" ==> Not parallel.
In addition, B omits "likely" ==> changes meaning.

C) they likely enjoyed the same activities as children.
Correct. "they" + "children" ==> Keep parallel structure.

D) he or she likely enjoyed the same activities as a child.
Wrong. The main subject of the preceding clause is "Most athletes" ==> Plural, not singular.

E) he or she likely enjoyed the same activities as children
Wrong. The main subject of the preceding clause is "Most athletes" ==> Plural, not singular.
In addition, "he or she" + "as children" ==> Not parallel.

Hope it helps.

C it is.

Since most olympic "athleteS ARE"... "They" will make more sense than "He"/"She". So D and E out.
A and B: They.... a child. Inconsistent! They...children OR He/She ....a child. Out.

C is the correct sentence with plural consistency w.r.t They....children.
