Simone Biles is listed at 4-foot-8, which made her the shortest U.S. athlete at the Rio Olympics, according to Olympic Talk.
Biles may seem small in general, but next to NBA players, she looks downright miniature.
The US women’s gymnastics team (sans Gabby Douglas) visited the Dallas Mavericks during the Mavericks training camp. Biles documented the experience on Twitter with some fantastic photos.
While the team looks small next to Deron Williams (6-foot-3) and Harrison Barnes (6-foot-8), Biles next to 7-foot Dirk Nowitzki is a sight to see.
good luck to the Mavs this season! thanks for letting us stop by practice 🙂 pic.twitter.com/SsCYUiNalD

It’s not the first time we’ve seen Biles side by side with a taller athlete. During the Rio Olympics, she posted a photo next to 6-foot-8 men’s volleyball player David Lee.

Somehow, Dirk manages to trump that height difference.
