World's Tallest Man

Bao Xishun of China (2nd Right)

Leonid Standnyk of Ukraine

An undated handout photo shows the world's tallest man Bao Xishun (2nd R) of China posing with unidentified men. Guinness World Records has returned the title of world's tallest man to Bao after Ukrainian Leonid Stadnyk refused to be measured under new guidelines. Bao, who stands at 7 feet, 8.95 inches (2.36 metres), held the title for a year before losing it in 2006 to Stadnyk, who is 8 feet 5.5 inches (2.57 metres) tall.
