It's the long and short of the Rio Olympics.

This dramatic photo shows Olympic athletes come in all shapes and sizes.

Two members of team USA got together for the picture which shows 213cm tall center DeAndre Jordan from the Los Angeles Clippers standing next to 137cm gymnast Ragan Smith.

The pair represent the biggest and smallest Olympians for the USA.


Smith, 15, is an alternate for the American gymnastics team.

Jordan is a member of the crack US men's basketball team expected to bring home the gold medal yet again.
