The world’s tallest man in Sultan Kösen, a 31 year old from Turkey, stands at 8 foot 3 tall. On the other side of the spectrum, the world’s smallest woman is Jyoti Amge. She is from India and she is just 2 foot 1.

Sultan Kösen, 31, from Turkey stands 8’3″ tall. Jyoti Amge, 24, from India is 2’1″.

Therefore, Kösen is about four times higher than Amge!

Unfortunately, because of his extreme height, Kösen wasn’t able to finish school. To support his family financially, he instead begun working as a farmer.

Although he was also given the promise of being signed to the Galatasaray basketball team as a teenager, he was unfortunately classed as too tall to play.

The little and large duo came together from across the world as they attempted to break many random and weird wacky world records.
