Turkish woman sets record for tallest female in the world

Turkish woman sets record for tallest female in the world

A Turkish woman who is more than seven feet tall has set a new world record as the tallest female alive.

Rumeysa Gelgi stands at 7ft 0.7in (215.16cm) due to a rare condition called Weaver syndrome which, among other things, causes accelerated growth.

The 24-year-old mostly uses a wheelchair but she can walk if she uses a walking frame.

Since she won her first world record title for being the tallest teenager alive in 2014, she has been using her platform to advocate for others with rare conditions.

“Every disadvantage can be turned into an advantage for yourself so accept yourself for who you are, be aware of your potential and do your best,” she said.

Guinness World Records said they are “honoured” to welcome her back into the record books for a second time.

“Her indomitable spirit and pride at standing out from the crowd is an inspiration,” said editor-in-chief Craig Glenday.

She previously said she has experienced negative reactions from members of the public to her appearance but she puts them down to ignorance.

“I like being different from everyone else,” she said. “It’s interesting and makes me feel special.

“It also provides me with easy access to high places, and looking down at people from above isn’t a bad thing either.”

The tallest man in the world, Sultan Kosen, is also Turkish and was measured at 8ft 2.8in (251cm) in 2018.

The record for the world’s tallest woman to have ever lived is held by Zeng Jinlian, from China, who stood at 8ft 1in (246.3cm) before her death in 1982.
