While most woman dream of having seemingly never-ending legs, one Russian model does.
She stands at 6ft 9in (2,05 metres), and has officially set a new record for having the world’s longest legs – for a female.
With two Guinness records to her name – she was also crowned the world’s tallest model – Ekaterina Lisina, 29, comes from a “very tall family, with her brother measuring 6ft 6in (1,98m), her father at 6ft 5in (1,95m) and her mother at 6ft 1in (1,85m),” reports The Telegraph.
Lisina’s left leg measures 132,8cm, while her right leg is 132,2cm long, and she says it feels “amazing” to become a Guinness World Records title:
Lisina overcame being bullied about her height as a teenager to achieve her dreams of becoming a professional model.
In 2008, she played in the Russian Olympic basketball team and won a bronze medal at the Beijing Games.
Guinness World Record’s Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday said:
“We might have been inspired this year by fictional superheroes, but the focus for this edition is celebrating the planet’s real-life superheroes, who come in all shapes and sizes.
“We believe that everyone has a superpower that’s waiting to be discovered, and our search for the latest record-breaking talent has brought us into contact with some truly superhuman characters.
“Beyond these wonder women and super men, you’ll also find an awe-inspiring roster of record-breakers, from talented pets and remarkable feats of engineering to amazing wonders from the natural world and every significant sporting achievement of the past year.”
