It’s good to be tall, of course. However, this can also be a real problem. And as it turned out, a huge problem!
In 2015, 18-year-old Turkish resident Rumeisa Gelgi was claimed the tallest woman in the world. Her height is 213 cm.
The record holder lives in the town of Safranbolu with her parents. The girl has a brother and sister, whose height is average. The cause of Rumeisa’s gigantism is a genetic feature.
Moreover, Gelgi has disproportionately large body parts.
Therefore, the life of the tallest woman is hard. It is very difficult for her to move around.
Rumeisa hardly walks on her own. She is usually carried in a wheelchair. If she dares to walk, then when walking she relies on a walker.
It is very difficult to find clothes and shoes for the Turkish woman. One shoe size is worth it. The girl has a size 12.
For this reason, clothes and shoes are made to order.
But despite all the difficulties, Gelgi tries not to lose heart and find positive aspects in her problem.
So, the woman jokes that there are not many people in the world who can look down on her. And she can easily reach the highest shelf in her house.
By the way, the tallest man lives in Turkey. The growth of Sultan Kosen is two hundred and fifty-one centimeters.
Fortunately for Rumeisa, she will definitely not catch up with him. The doctors assured her that she would not grow higher.
The tallest woman in history was Anna Haining Swan. She was two hundred and forty-one centimeters tall.
