Meet Svetlana Pankratova, she’s the woman with the longest legs in the world.
It was verified as measuring 132 cm (51.9 in) in Torremolinos, Spain on 8 July 2003.
The Russian beauty according to Guinness World Records, is not the world’s tallest woman but her legs alone are 132 centimetres (4 ft 4 in) long.
Because her upper body is of much more typical dimensions, she is 196 centimetres (6 ft 5 in) tall. She has also very large feet, size 13 (US) / 46 (EU), making shopping for shoes difficult.
From 1992 to 1995, Pankratova played women’s basketball in the USA, and on 2008 she appeared in Trafalgar Square in London on September 16, 2008 with He Pingping, the smallest man in the world, to promote the 2009 edition of the Guinness World Records.
