Tallest and shortest man meet (extra credit)

January 15, 2010

Have you ever wonder what it would be like if the world’s tallest man got to meet the world smallest man? The Guinness world book of records brought  together Sultan Kosen a 27 year old Turkish farmer, who currently holds the title for the world’s tallest man and He Pingping the world’s smallest man to meet in  Istanbul, Turkey. The two met  this past Thursday at the opening of a Guinness World records show. Kosen is 8 feet 1 inch, while Pingping is 2 feet 5 inches.  Kosen  says although everyone appears to be short to him when he saw Pingping, there a big altitude of difference. He said he had a hard time seeing him. He Pingping who is 21 years old said that he was very exited to meet Kosen. Kosen, also holds the record for the largest hand at the size of 27.5 centimenters and the largest feet at the size of 36.5 centimeters. Kosen suffers from pituitary gigantism and Pingping was born with a condition called primordial dwarfism. I find it veryamazing how tall Kosen is and how he was three records in the guinness world book of records one the tallest man second the biggest hand and third the biggest feet.  Although Pingping is still consider the smallest man there is another man who claims to be 2 feet 3 inches. and if that is true he will be consider the smallest man in the world. Watch out pingping it appears you have some competition!
