If you think you have to be 7-feet tall or 300 pounds to make it in the sports world, think again.

When it comes to sports, everyone always assumes that bigger is better. But we at SIKIDS.com decided it's time the little guys get their due.

We'll be counting down the Top 10 small athletes in the world today. Each of these athletes is either below average height when compared to the rest of the world (shorter than 5' 9" for men, 5' 3" for women) or star in a sport like basketball, where everyone in the league is especially tall.

They might not stand tall, but these 10 stars prove that big things can come in little packages...
