Guinness World Records: The world’s tallest woman

Rumeysa Gelgi in Turkey was just named the tallest woman in the Book of Guinness World Records, measuring 2.15 meters tall.

Rumeysa Gelgi, 24, in Karabuk province, was diagnosed with Weave syndrome which causes her body to develop abnormally, according to Guinness World Records. In 2014, Gelgi used to be named as the tallest woman in the world at the age of 18.

Most of the time, Gelgi can’t naturally move, so she moves in a wheelchair instead. However, she can still move using the walker for a short period of time.

“Every disadvantage can turn into your advantage, so accept yourself, be aware of your potential and try your best,” Gelgi said.

“It is such a honor to welcome Rumeysa with the Guiness World Record. Her courage and pride of herself are inspirations for everyone,” Craig Glenday, Editor in Chief at Guinness World Records, said.

The world’s tallest man is Sultan Kosen, also from Turkey, measuring 2,51 meters tall. The Guinness World Records disclosed that the tallest man and woman are from the same country is a rare incident.

The first time this happened was back in 2009 as Bao Xishun measuring 2.36 meters tall and Yao Defen at 2.33 meters tall, from China, both became the tallest man and woman respectively.

The tallest woman ever in the book was Zeng Jinlian, from Hunan province, China, at 2.46 meters tall. This woman passed away in February 1982.

Aside from heights, Guiness World Records also names many special achievements for women. In August, Samantha Ramsdell in Connecticut, America was acknowledged as the woman with the world’s widest mouth, measuring up to 6.56 centimeters. In her videos on TikTok, Ramsdell managed to put 3 donuts into her mouth or a great amount of chips.
