Do you know how tall the average modern man is?
By the way, not as tall as one might think – only 165 centimeters. Of course, for ladies, the indicator is even less – 154 cm.
However, this is just generalized data. After all, height is influenced by many factors – from genetics to the work of the hormonal system.
As a result of nature’s jokes, the most unexpected things happen!
Where should the tallest man in the world come from? China is the last thing on your mind. But it was there that a man was born who is recognized as a real giant.
And this is officially confirmed. Since the man is listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
This man’s name is Bao Xishun. He was born and lives in Inner Mongolia.
From childhood, the boy was the same as everyone else. Then suddenly there was an unexpected growth spurt.
As a result, by adulthood, Bao stretched up to 256 centimeters!
However, Bao’s height in the homeland of a man did not play into his hands. Nobody wanted to hire him! If he was offered positions, then only the lowest paid ones.
In fact, Bao has been working almost all his life as an ordinary shepherd.
The personal life also did not work out. The man lived to the age of 56, and only then was the chosen one found.
By the way, Bao tried to find love all over the world. In 2007, the wedding finally took place!
Who became the wife of a giant from China?
This is a saleswoman who lived in Ulan-Khad. A girl named Xia Shujuan is 30 years younger than her beloved. And by the way, she is quite normal in height – the difference with her husband is 70 centimeters. This did not interfere with family happiness.
When the society learned about the wedding of the tallest man, reporters arrived at the event. There were as many as 15 companies in China who wanted to sponsor the event.
Very soon after the marriage, a child appeared in the family.
It was a son and, logically, quite big and strong. The height of the baby reached at birth 59 centimeters, and weight – four kilograms.
Dad was very happy about it!
Bao’s son is thirteen years old. So far, he is no different from his peers. But parents do not lose hope! After all, dad’s height spurt occurred only after the fifteenth birthday.
