Search for world's tallest woman

Post  Guest on Thu 4 Mar - 23:15

Thursday March 04 2010

An international search has been launched to find the world's tallest woman.

The title has been vacant since the death in 2008 of 53-year-old American Sandy Allen, who stood at 7ft 7.25in.

She had held the record since 1976, Guinness World Records (GWR) said.

Her height rocketed after a tumour on her pituitary gland produced an over-supply of growth hormone, a GWR spokesman said.

"The tallest category always brings out the most awe in people and hopefully another amazing woman will step forward for measurement and claim the title," said Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of GWR.

The world's tallest man is Turk Sultan Kosen, 27, who measures 8ft 1in, GWR said.

I was in a club many years ago with my mates and was 'eyeing' up the candy so we eventually went over and asked them for a dance and as this girl stood up she got up and up and up till she was head and shoulders above me,and i'm 6'4" so i think she was over 7' something,i have to say i nearly went deaf,she was a big girl in more ways than one............
