World’s Tallest Man Meets the World’s Short World’s Tallest Man Meets the World’s Short The World’s Ta l l e s t M a n m a d e history the day he met the World’s Shortest Man on July 13th, 2007. The meeting took place in Baotou, China where the two were able to meet for the first time ever. The World’s Tallest Living Man is Sultan Kösen; originally from Ankara, Turkey, Kösen stands at an amazing 8’3” and is still growing. Sultan however, is not the tallest man ever. The tallest man everRobert Waldow- stood

at a shocking 8’11.1 feet. While he still holds the record for World’s Tallest Man Ever, he died in the 1940s, and therefore could no longer be the World’s Tallest Living Man. On the other side, we have have He Pingpang. Pingpang holds the Guinness World Record for the World’s Shortest Man Who Can Walk. Born and raised in Ulanquab, China- Pingpang measures only 2 feet 5 inches. Despite this, He is not the world’s shortest man. The world’s shortest man is Jurney Balawing

[6]

who stands at only 1’11.67 feet, however, since Balawing cannot walk, Pingpang wins the a w a r d s f o r Wo r l d ’s Shortest Man Who Can Walk. Since meeting, He and Sultan have become friends truly showing friendship can be stopped by nothing. They might be 5 feet 8 inches apart, but they don’t seem to mind. So next time you feel like your too tall or too short, just think of one of these two gentlemen and guaranteed, you will feel much more...average. By: Lizzy Cardinal
