World’s Tallest Man Meets The World’s Smallest Woman (PICTURED)

Different strokes for different folks from Guinness World Records.

Jyoti Amge (born 16 December 1993), a resident of Nagpur, India, is the world’s smallest living woman according to the Guinness Book of Records.
On December 16, 2011 ‒ Amge’s 18th birthday, she was officially declared the world’s smallest woman by Guinness Book of Records with a height of 62.8 cm (2 ft 0.6 in). Her restricted height is due to a growth anomaly called achondroplasia.

The tallest man living is Sultan Kösen (Turkey, b.10 December 1982) who measured 251 cm (8 ft 3 in) in Ankara, Turkey, on 08 February 2011.

The part-time farmer was the first man over 8 ft (2.43 m) to be measured by Guinness World Records in over 20 years.
