The Olympics are a magical time when athletes from all over the world show off their incredible skill.

From swimming to gymnastics, people can admire the grit and grace each athlete competes with and how different all of them are from each other.

Simone Biles, a 19-year-old gymnast competing for Team USA in Rio, admires those differences.

While hanging around before the start of the games on Friday, Biles found David Lee, a member of the US men’s volleyball team, and shared a photo of the two of them back-to-back.

The 6-foot-8 player towers two feet over the 4-foot-8 gymnast.

As she pointed out, “size difference in Olympians doesn’t matter, depending on what sport you do.”
