Simone Biles, at 4-foot-8, was the shortest U.S. athlete in Rio.

Proving that Olympians come in all shapes and sizes, Biles has posted multiple photos on social media standing next to 6-foot-8 U.S. volleyball player David Lee.

But Biles explored new heights when she recently posted a photo with Dirk Nowitzki, a 7-foot basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks.

Biles, a five-time Olympic gymnastics medalist, attended a Mavericks practice while in Dallas for a USA Gymnastics tour of shows.

Nowitzki played for Germany at the 2008 Olympics.
