The Tallest Person in the World

Must read

tallest person in the world

There are many people in this world, but there are some who stand out. If you’re one of them, then you’ve probably got something special going on.

The tallest person in the world is Sultan Kosen of Turkey, who is 8 feet 2.82 inches high. He holds the Guinness World Record for being the tallest living person.

Robert Pershing Wadlow

Wadlow was born on February 22, 1918 in Alton, Illinois. He was a healthy 8 pounds 6 ounces and soon began to grow rapidly.

He was 3 feet tall as a toddler, could carry his father at age 9, and stretched to an incredible height of 8 feet 11 inches. He was a legend in his small hometown and is known as the “Alton Giant.”

His remarkable height was attributed to an over active pituitary gland that caused him to produce much more than normal levels of human growth hormone (HGH). Although this condition can be treated today, there was no therapy available in the 1920s.

As a child, Robert grew rapidly and became the tallest person in the world. He surpassed his 180.3-centimetres-tall father, Harold F., at eight years of age and remained the tallest until his death at 22.

When he was a teenager, he weighed over 370 lb and was 2.45 metres tall. He was the tallest teenager in the world and the highest person ever to graduate from high school.

After he graduated from high school, he enrolled in Shurtleff College with the intention of studying law. He stayed in the United States until his death at the age of 22.

His final resting place was in Oakwood Cemetery in Alton, Illinois. He was buried with his parents and three of his siblings. His coffin spanned 10 ft 9 in (3.28 m), was over 1 foot deep, and weighed over 1,000 lb (450 kg). It was carried by twelve pallbearers and eight assistants.

Sultan Kosen

Sultan Kosen, a Turkish farmer who stands at 8 feet 3 inches tall, holds the Guinness World Record for the tallest man alive. He also holds the record for having the largest hands in the world, measuring 28.5 centimeters from thumb to pinky finger.

Sultan, who has been the record holder since 2009, had his growth spurt start at age 10 due to a tumor that damaged his pituitary gland and caused him to excrete excessive amounts of growth hormone. The condition is known as gigantism, which means “big-head,” and it is not hereditary.

He has lived a life filled with challenges, but also incredible opportunities. He has travelled to more than a hundred countries, appeared on television and become a cultural ambassador for Turkey.

Despite his size, Sultan has managed to live a relatively normal life. He has a wife and two children who are average in height. He enjoys going to shows and spending time with friends.

When he isn’t traveling the globe or playing basketball, Kosen spends his free time farming on his family’s farm. He still has a strong desire for the trappings of a traditional family life, including a loving wife and children.

But as the world’s tallest man, he has to deal with several health problems affecting his body, especially his joints and eyes. He also has a large pituitary tumor that’s been causing him pain and putting pressure on the nerves in his eyes.

In 2010 he received a life-saving surgery, performed by Dr. Sheehan, which targeted his pituitary tumor and reduced the amount of growth hormone that was being released by his body. The procedure — called gamma knife radiosurgery — isn’t a cure, but it has prevented a lot of further growth in his stature and stopped the tumor from getting any bigger.

Chandra Bahadur Dangi

Chandra Bahadur Dangi was born on 30 November 1939 in the sleepy hamlet of Kalimati, Salyan District, Nepal. He was of average height at birth, but by the time he was four his mother noticed that he was not gaining height as quickly as his peers were. He was given bone-strengthening medicines but they did not have the desired effect.

A timber contractor who was visiting Rimkholi, a village in the remote Dang District took notice of his diminutive size and recommended him to Guinness World Records for evaluation. The company was impressed and awarded him the aforementioned crown.

He had to travel some 400 km (250 mi) to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, to be measured by a team from Guinness World Records. The team used a technique called triple height measurement, which is the standard for evaluating the best possible record-holders.

After he had his measure, the team awarded him two Guinness World Records titles: the shortest man in history and the smallest person ever recorded. He was also featured in the 57th edition of The Guinness Book of Records, which is still in print.

He died on 3 September 2015 at the age of 75 in American Samoa, where he had been touring for much of the year with Tupa’l Bruno’s Magic Circus. He was accompanied by his assistant of the moment, a tame dog named Boogie. He is now buried in his home country of Nepal where his family will continue to celebrate the life and times of their world record-holder.


Mehrzad was born with a rare condition called acromegaly which is caused by excess growth hormone. At the age of 16 he was already over six feet tall.

Despite his height, Mehrzad was lonely and depressed. He lived in seclusion in a coastal town in Iran. He normally used a wheelchair or crutches to move around.

Five years ago, he was approached by Iranian national coaches who were looking for an unusual talent to train and improve their sitting volleyball team. Seeing him on television, they spotted his potential and encouraged him to begin playing the sport.

It didn’t take long for him to start winning matches. He quickly honed his spiking skills and became one of the best spikers in the world. He helped his country to win gold at the Rio Paralympics in 2016 and he regained the world title for Iran in 2018.

In addition to his physical ability, he also has a high intelligence level and is very focused. He is known for his spiking skills and his aggressive attacks on the court.

The coach who spotted his talent said he is a very powerful player who can attack and defend well. He is a very versatile player and can be a great addition to any team.

His life has been a struggle but he has overcome his handicaps. He is now the tallest man in the world and he is still growing.

He was spotted in 2011 by Iran national coach Hadi Rezaei who was watching a program on television that highlighted people with physical disabilities and unusual talents. He contacted the network and they helped him to contact Mehrzad. He was then coached by the coach and trained at regional Iranian clubs.


The tallest person in the world is Zhang Juncai, who stands at a height of 2.42 meters. He is from China and was verified as the tallest man in November 2004. He is 10 cm shorter than Bao Xishun, who was the tallest man in the world until 2009.

Juncai is one of the most famous people in the world and has gained fame due to his remarkable height. He is also a very wealthy person and has many assets that he uses to fund his lifestyle.

He is known for his extraordinary accomplishments and is a very positive person. He believes that everyone should be respected and loved no matter what they look like or how they are different from other people.

His unique build is a result of a rare condition known as pituitary gigantism. It causes excess production of growth hormones in the body.

This condition causes a person to grow up extremely tall and large in size, which is why it is so difficult for them to maintain their height as they age. This is why it is so important for them to find a doctor who can treat their conditions and help them achieve a healthy and balanced life.

Another man who is the tallest person in the world is Sultan Kosen, who stands at a height of 246 centimeters (8.5 feet). He is a member of a Kurdish family and was born with a tumor in his pituitary gland that caused him to become very tall.

In addition to being the tallest person in the world, he has also been a great role model for other children. He is very generous and donates a lot of money to various causes.
