The ‘Michael Jordan of Gymnastics’ Proves Athletes Come In All Shapes and Sizes With Viral Photo
Sports| | By Mauricio Castillo
Simone Biles, 19, already being heralded as the most dominant female athlete in the world today, whose fellow gymnasts claim to just “be competing for second place,” is making the trending waves roll with a picture she posted to her Twitter account just as the Summer Olympic games edge closer and her inevitable victories begin to rack up.
In the picture, Biles, who stands at a muscled 4’8″ and weighs 109 pounds, is posing back to back with Volleyball Gold Medalist, 6’8″ David Lee.
The difference in their sizes is insane:

And as crazy as the difference is, it is the small Biles, not Lee, who has been deemed the most feared athlete setting foot in Rio this August.
A living embodiment that not only athletes, but superstars, come in all shapes and sizes.
