Dear MEL Topic Readers,
World's tallest man meets world's shortest woman
How tall can a man be? The tallest living man is Mr. Sultan Kosen, whose height is 2.5 meter. He was born in Turkey, and has been the tallest man since 2009, and is now 36 years old,. His extraordinary height is caused by excess growth hormone produced in the brain. His parents and four siblings are of ordinary height.
How short could a woman be? The shortest living woman is Ms. Jyoti Amge from India, whose height is just 0.63m. She was born in 1993 and was declared as the shortest woman in 2011 by Guinness World Records. She is an actress and appeared in several shows and stories.
How do they look when they are in a photo together? Mr. Kosen is four times taller than Ms. Amege. Can they fit in a photo? Yes, beautifully well in fact. They were pictured together in front of a Pyramid in Egypt to promote its tourism!
