Top 10 tallest men in world
Long time since we posted anything, so I searched a little and found a nice article about the top 10 tallest men in the world. Who doesn’t want to be tall? and look like Will Smith or The Rambo! but when you get something more than you wanted, it might later start becoming a problem. Same is the case with the following to top ten tallest men. Here comes the list of top ten tallest men in the world.
10. Mr. Sun Ming Ming
I’m quite sure you must have seen the 10th tallest man in the world. How? Haven’t you seen the Rush hour 3? yes you have right? remember that abnormally tall guy who throws both of our pet heroes rolling on the floor? Yes! exactly! that’s our tenth tallest man in the world. He is from Harbin, China and is also a professional basketball player (has to be).
Height: 7.9 feet
9. Mr. Bao Xishun
9th among the top 10 tallest men in the world? A Chinese guy again, Bao Xishun. I’m pretty sure China is emerging as the nation of Nutrition (or is it overnutrition? no offence! just kidding). Bao was born in 1951 in Inner Mongolia and is now leading a very happy life with his wife. Xishun has his name in the Guinness world records as the tallest man in the world.
Height: 7.9 feet
8. Mr. Sultan Kosen
Whose standing tall at the 8th position of top 10 tallest men list? Sultan Kosen from Turkey. Sultan is quite a young guy (born on 1983) and is a known tallest basketball player. Sultan happened to have a lot of back problems because of his heights. Not much information is available about him anywhere but, we do know that he was very very tall!. Supposedly he is the tallest basket ball player recorded.
Height: 8 feet
7. Mr. Alexander Sizonenko
Hope I don’t piss USA by saying that the 7th tallest man in the world is a Russian. Alexander Sizoneko was born in Russia in 1959 and since a long time he has been a very good basket ball player representing Russia. He has represented Russia in many basketball matches and presently he is divorced and lives along with his son in Saint Petersburg. That’s our 7th tallest man in the world.
Height: 8 feet
6. Mr. Suleiman Ali
Born in Libya in 1943, Suleiman Ali Nashnush is the 6th tallest man in the world who ever lived. Sadly he passed away on 25th of February 1991. Guess what? He too was one of the tallest basket ball player and also performed as an actor. In fact he has also acted in a film “Satyricon”. Well, how good is that, that a small country is represented by a tall guy?
Height: 8.05 feet
5. Gabriel Estevao Monjane
Born on 1944, Gabriel is supposedly one of the tallest African who ever lived. Monjane’s abnormal height growth started right after the birth because of the over active pituitary gland. In 1988 he entered the Guinness book of world records for the title of tallest man in the world. Gabriel died in 1990 because of a high fall at his home.
Height: 8.1 feet
4. Mr. Vaino Myllyrinne
On the list of top 10 tallest men in the world we have a guy from Finland. Born in 1909, Vaino was 8.1 feet tall and is still the top 4th among the tallest men. He was one of the tallest soldier who served the defence of Finland. And he was also voted the 12th greatest people by a TV show. At least there is one person who did something other than just play basket ball right? Vaino passed away in 1963.
Height: 8.14 feet
3. Leonid Stadnyk
Not enough ? This guy from Ukraine who was born on August 5,1970 and was supposed to be entering the Guinness book of world records for the title of tallest man on earth, but he did not as he refused to get his height measured. This guy is still alive and growing. Climb your terraces, probably you could see him (just kidding). So that was our 3rd top tallest man.
Height: 8.5 feet
2. John Rogan
Were you wondering how come Russia has a tallest man and USA doesn’t have anyone to beat him? You’re mistaken. Born in USA, John is the top 2nd tallest man in the world who ever lived. In fact he is the tallest afro American. Unfortunately we don’t have his picture. Do you think its cool to be at the top of the list of top 10 tall men? ask him, as he suffered for years and could not walk because of his height. Sadly, he is not alive now.
Height: 8.9 feet
1. Robert Wadlow
Is this a cold war or what? the tallest man in the world is an American! (or is it the only recorded fact?) Born in Alton, USA, Robert Wadlow grew to a height of a staggering 8.11 feet. He still remains the tallest man in the world. Unfortunately Wadlow died at a very young age (22). But the world will always remember the person who always walked tall among the little men in the world.
That was a sweet-short post about the top 10 tallest men in the world.
