Gelga has disproportionately large body parts.
Of course it’s good to be tall. However, this can also be a real problem. And as it turned out, a huge problem!
In 2015, 18-year-old Turkish woman Rumeisa Gelgi was recognized as the tallest woman in the world. Her height is 213 cm.
The record holder lives in the town of Safranbolu with her parents. The girl has a brother and sister, whose height is average. The reason for Rumeisa gigantism is a genetic feature.
Moreover, Gelgi has disproportionately large body parts.
Therefore, the life of the tallest woman is hard. It is very difficult for her to move around.
Rumeisa hardly walks on her own. She is usually carried in a wheelchair. If she dares to walk, she leans on a walker to walk.
It is very difficult for a Turkish woman to find clothes and shoes. One shoe size is worth it. The girl is size 12.
For this reason, clothes and shoes are made to order.
But, despite all the difficulties, Gelgi tries not to lose heart and find positive aspects in his problem.
So, the woman jokes that there are not many people in the world who can look down on her. And she can easily reach the highest shelf in her house.
By the way, the tallest man lives in Turkey. The growth of Sultan Kosen is two hundred and fifty one centimeters.
Fortunately for Rumeisa, she definitely won’t catch up with him. Doctors assured her that she would not grow taller.
The tallest woman in history was Anna Haining Swan. She was two hundred and forty-one centimeters tall.
