The World’s Tallest Man Hung Out With The World’s Shortest Woman And The Photos Are Fantastic


The world’s tallest man met the world’s shortest woman on January 27 in Egypt for an event organized by the Egyptian Culture Ministry.

Sultan Kösen, 31, from Turkey stands 8’3″ tall. Jyoti Amge, 24, from India is 2’1″.

Kösen is approximately four times Amge’s height.

Amge is a TV personality in Nagpur, India. She is considered to be the manifestation of a goddess in her hometown.

She was also cast in the fourth season of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

Due to his extreme size, Kösen was never able to finish school and instead began working as a farmer to support his family.

As a teenager, he was signed to the Galatasaray basketball team, but unfortunately he was too tall to play.

The small and large duo joined people across the globe as they attempted to break many different weird and wacky world records.
