U.S. Olympic gymnast Simone Biles stands just 4-feet-8. Despite her diminutive stature, she is considered the most feared woman gymnast in Rio.

The 19-year-old is a three-time world all-around champion (2013-15) and a member of the gold medal-winning U.S. teams at the 2014 and 2015 World Artistic Gymnastic Championships.

So how does she stack up against other Olympians? Here she is standing back-to-back with 6-feet-8 U.S. men's volleyball player David Lee:

Biles posted the photo on Twitter, where she pointed out that "Size difference in Olympians doesn't matter, depending on what sport you do."

The post has been retweeted 4,100 times as of this writing and has become a trending topic on Facebook.
