World's Tallest Man




Xi Shun is the world's tallest living man, again


This man, Xi Shun, stands 7'9"!

Last year year Chinese giant Xi Shun lost his title as the world's tallest living man to a Ukrainian who measured a whopping 8ft 5.5 inches

Short of a sudden growth spurt or an accident to Leonid Stadnyk there seem to be no way for the 7ft 8.95 inch man to regain his crown.

But yesterday it was announced that amendments to the rules would see Xi Shun given the title in the Guinness World Records book 2009.

Please read the complete article.


Bao Xishun





Bao Xishun, at 7 feet 9 inches (236cm),
meets He Pingping, who is 2 feet 5 inches (73cm).





World's tallest man has become a father




The world's tallest man, Bao Xishun, has recently become the world's tallest father in 2008, but his normal-size son could have trouble filling his Dad's big shoes.

China's Tallest Man




A surprising discovery for one Chinese man. Zhao Liang always knew that he was much, much taller than all his neighbors. But he wouldnt have guessed that he is actually the tallest man on Earth.

27-year old Chinese man Zhao Liang made an unexpected discovery about himself while being treated for a foot injury.

When his doctors measured him, his enormous frame stood a full 10 cm taller than the current Guinness Record holder for the world's tallest person.

But being different has not always been an advantage for Zhao.

[Zhao Liang, Worlds Tallest Man]:
"It's very difficult to find a car that suits me. When other people need one bed in a hotel, I always need to put two together. My shoes are specially made, because I cannot find ones in my size. It is not that hard to get tailored clothes, but it is very difficult to get shoes."

The current official Guinness title-holder, 57-year-old Chinese citizen Bao Xishun, stands at 2.36 meters (7.74 ft.) tall.

Though currently unable to stand as his foot is in plaster, Zhao measures 2.46 meters (8.1 ft) in height.

However, Zhao's mother Wang Keyun didn't care if her son was the tallest man in the world. She has bigger worries.

[Wang Keyun, Mother]:
"I am a bit concerned. He is taller than all other people, so I am worried that he may not be able to find a wife."

Zhao's grandfather was an impressive two meters (6.5 ft) in height, but Zhao's parents and two siblings are average height.

Weighing 155 kg (341.7 lbs.), Zhao eats three times more than an average person.

He said he has gotten used to his height, and doesn't suffer from any health complications on account of it.


Doctors in a hospital in China have just discovered that one of their patients is over 8 feet (2.4 meters) tall - making him the world's tallest man.

8-Foot Man from Ukraine Is Pretty Unhappy




At 8 ft 4 inches (2.53m), Leonid Stadnyk may have been named the tallest man in the world in 2007 - but he's certainly not happy.
