The Tallest People in the World

Xishun, 56, is a herdsman who towers 7 feet, 9 inches (2.4 meters). He is listed as Earth's tallest man in the Guinness World Records and won fame in 2006 when his long arms saved a dolphin's life.

All Leonid Stadnyk wants is a quiet, simple and inconspicuous life. But the 33-year old Ukrainian is just too tall for that.

At a height of 2.53 metres (8 feet 4 inches), Stadnyk may be the world's tallest man, and he keeps on growing.
