Height Is Just a Number! Aly Raisman Shares Hilarious Instagram Snap with 6-Foot-8 Basketball Player
Olympians come in all sizes!
The U.S. women’s gymnastics team – who call themselves the “Final Five” in honor of team coordinator Martha Kérolyi’s last Olympics – documented their time in Rio and, lucky for us, posted many of their photos on social media.
On Wednesday, individual all-around silver medalist Aly Raisman shared a hilarious pic with Australian female basketball player Liz Cambage to show the height difference between the two athletes.
“Basketball player compared to a gymnast. (Excuse my outfit, don’t care it doesn’t match. I was tired and hungry),” she captioned the photo.
Raisman stands at 5-foot-2 and in the snap it’s clear to see that the 6-foot-8 Cambage towers over the tiny gymnast.
This isn’t the first time Final Five members have made light of their short statures.
For more about the Final Five, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.
On August 2, individual all-around gold medalist Simone Biles posted a picture of herself standing back-to-back with American volleyball player David Lee, who, at 6-foot-8, stands two feet taller than the gymnast.
“Size difference in Olympians doesn’t matter, depending on what sport you do! 6’8″ & 4’8″,” she captioned the photo.
Teammates and close friends, Biles and Raisman scored gold and silver, respectively, in both the individual all-around competition and in the women’s floor exercise final.
Lynn Raisman, Aly’s mother, said that with the Games winding down, the girls will be going on a press tour.
“After the girls get back, they’ll have some time, and then they’ll start touring,” Lynn tells PEOPLE. “They’re really excited about that. Then they’ll see what the next big adventure is!”
