Guinness World Records has just confirmed that Ekaterina Lisina from Russia is the new title holder for the Longest legs (female).
Her pins are an unparalleled 132.8 cm long for the left leg and 132.2 cm (52.0 in) long for the right leg, as measured in her hometown of Penza, Russia.
The 29-year-old from a family of tall people – with her brother measuring 6’ 6”, her father at 6’ 5” and her mother at 6’ 1”. She is a towering 205.16 cm (6 ft 8.77 in) tall, to be exact. Ekaterina always felt very comfortable about her size at home.
Her height has helped her basketball career, a talent that also runs in her family, and she won a bronze medal playing for Russia in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
In spite of her sporting prowess, Ekaterina always wanted to be model. So now she has been working as a professional model for over a year, and as a result, she’s snapped up a second Guinness World Records title for the Tallest professional model.
One of the reasons Ekaterina applied to Guinness World Records is because she was teased at school. So she wants “to be an inspiration to girls who are not very confident.”
