July 10, 2009

Today Bao Xishun, Zao Liang & Leonid Stadnyk are known as the tallest men in the world.

Who has the largest hand?

While Robert Wadlow from the US is known as the tallest man in history, today the official title ‘world’s tallest man’ has become a true battle-field! Let’s take a look at the hands of the biggest 3 contenders:

The left hand of Bao Xishun from China.

However… in 2007 Leonid Stadnyk – a former veterinarian from Ukraine. Leonid Stadnyk’s body height was unofficially measured at 2.59 meters (8 feet 5 inches). But in 2008 Mr. Stadnyk refused to be measured under the new Guinness World Records guidelines, and so the the official Guinness World Records title ‘tallest man’ was re-gained by Bao Xishun.
