Gymnast Simone Biles (below) won four gold medals in the Rio Olympics last year. She is four feet nine inches tall.

Simone Biles − gold

Gymnast Morgan Hurd (below) just won the the all-around title in the World Championships last week on Oct 6. She is four feet five inches tall.

Very unusually for a gymnast, ‘Morgi’ – her nickname – wears glasses in competition.

In case you’re wondering, she was born in Wuzhou in Guangxi, China and adopted by an American woman as a baby.

MUST WATCH VIDEO!

The video below details the gravity-defying feats that Simone is able to accomplish due to her lack of height. Imagine what a pocket dynamo like Morgi is capable of as she progresses further in her training.
