Most athletes are generally large, but there are the exceptions to the rule. Take NBA’s Isaiah Thomas of the Cleveland Cavaliers, for example, who’s a “tiny” mere 5’9″. Most of his opponents are on average 6’7″. But then there are the exceptions of the “big athlete” rule; the ones that are beyond big. Some athletes are so massive, they need special requirements for their transportation.
These are the world’s biggest athletes from back in the day up to today. And they’re not all male!
