Height is a funny thing is sports. Some athletes like basketball players, need to be freakishly tall, while others like gymnasts need to be small. The 2012 Summer Olympics in London will have some athletes on both ends of the spectrum, but this list focuses on the taller ones.
To be clear, this list excludes the U.S. basketball team because they would dominate. It also restricts sports to one athlete.
Team USA is made up of countless Olympians, but these are the five tall ones who will blow you away.
