Olympians come in all shapes and sizes. We will be reminded of that time and time again over the next couple of weeks, once the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil officially kickoff on Wednesday.
Two American athletes in particular, gymnast Simone Biles and volleyball star David Lee, are as different as you could be.
As you would expect, the two highlighted their size difference in an incredible photo that surfaced on social media Tuesday morning.
Biles is 4-foot-8. Lee, a volleyball star who won Olympic gold at the 2008 Beijing games, stands at 6-foot-8.
Here is what a two-foot size difference looks like:

Let’s hope they keep Biles away from the USA basketball team or our minds will be blown even more.
Biles, a gold medal hopeful of her own, begins competition on Sunday, Aug. 7. Lee and the rest of the United States indoor volleyball team kicks off their quest for gold on in Pool A on the same day.
Best of luck to this pair and the rest of the athletes in Rio for the games.
