Who is the Tallest Man in the World Todayposted by: Dennis Aguilar
The tallest man in the world today (year 2009) is Sultan Kosen recently discovered by Guiness World Records. Sultan Kosen’s height is 8 foot 1 inches tall. He beat Bao XiShun – a mongolian who recently hold the record of the World Tallest Man in Guiness World Records. Bao XiShun stands 7 foot 9 Inches Tall. He beat Leonid Stadnyk – a Ukrainian who claims that he is 8 foot 5 inches tall. Bao XiShun(7’9″ tall) won over Leonid Stadnyk (8’5″ tall) because the Ukrainian refused to Guiness World Records to be measured.
Sultan Kosen is the world tallest man today but he’s still not the World Tallest Ever in history. He would still look upward to Robert Pershing Wadlow – the World tallest man ever who walked the earth. Robert Wadlow’ height was 8 foot 11 inches tall. He lived at Alton Illinois from 1918 to 1940. Robert Wadlow died because of faulty leg brace which causing a large blister which then led to major infection.
