One of the biggest stars to emerge from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was United States gymnast Simone Biles. Biles earned gold in the individual all-around competition, vault and floor exercise, while claiming bronze on the balance beam.
Along with her individual success, Biles was a member of the “Final Five,” which claimed the team all-around gold medal for the United States.
Since the Olympics have ended, Biles has been traveling around and making various public appearances.
Biles’ latest stop took her to the Dallas Mavericks practice facility where she watched the NBA stars on the court with some of her Olympic teammates. Then, the 4-foot-8 Biles took a photo next to 7-foot Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki that will blow your mind.

That almost doesn’t even look real.
What it does show, however, is that elite athletes come in all sizes.
