Simone Biles is the overwhelming favorite to win as many as five gold medals
Talent really does come in all sizes.
On Wednesday, Biles’ gymnastics coach Aimee Boorman took to Twitter to post a photo of the 4-foot-8-inch gymnast – the shortest of the 555 athletes that make up U.S.’s Olympic delegation – next to 6-foot-2-inch Phelps.
Surprisingly, there is one athlete that tops Phelps in the height department on Team USA.
On Tuesday, Biles herself posted a picture of herself standing back-to-back with American volleyball player David Lee, who stands over two feet taller than the gymnast.
