BeretChances of knowing Olivier Rio are slim. Perhaps you should remember his name, because the Canadian basketball player is at least 2 meters 25 centimeters tall at the age of 15. A future phenomenon in the NBA?
Great pictures on social media. 15-year-old Olivier Rio is slightly taller than his peers. The Canadian, who is 2m 25 and wears size 50 shoes, has no trouble scoring. He doesn’t even have to jump into a dunk. He has no competition – he is literally head and shoulder above her.
Rio played for Real Madrid’s youth team, but is now moving to the United States. There he will train at the IMG Academy, hoping to fulfill his NBA dream there.
