The British Broadcasting Company has put together an interactive website that matches regular people to their 'ideal Olympic sport' and even the closest matching athlete, based on their body type.

Users just enter their height and weight, and the computer algorithm searches among the website's database of Olympians to find the closest match.

Athletes range in size from Japan's diminutive 66-pound Asuka Teramoto to the gargantuan frame of China's 7-foot 2-inch Zhaoxu Zhang.
