Have you ever met the tallest woman in the world? Not just very, very tall, but a giant? No, this is not a joke at all, and there is absolutely nothing funny in the history of these women.
If you are even a little curious who these 9 representatives of the fairer sex are (although it is difficult to call them that, because they are the tallest women on Earth), just keep reading. We guarantee you will be absolutely shocked!
Yao Defen (China)
Yao Defen's height was 2 m 34 cm, which gave her the official status of "The tallest woman in the world." Yao was born into a poor Chinese family and grew up like all normal children until she began to eat three times more than her peers. By the age of 11, her height was already 1 m 88 cm. Like most cases of gigantism, her incredible height was caused by a brain tumor. Yao managed to live a more or less happy life and died at the age of 40 (in 2012). It should be noted that this happens quite often in such anomalous situations.
Margo Didek (Poland)
This woman was the most famous Polish basketball player with a height of 2.18 m. Margot went down in history as the tallest female basketball player in the world. Unfortunately, in 2011 she suffered a heart attack and died, leaving her husband with two sons who currently reside in Brisbane, Australia.
Mali Duangdi (Thailand)
Until August 2016, she was the tallest woman in Thailand and second in all of Asia. Her height was 2.08 m. Unfortunately, her height played a cruel joke on her, because the taller a person is, the more likely he is to get a heart attack. So it happened with Mali - she died of a heart attack.
San Feng (China)
The girl was born in 1987 and is currently the tallest woman in China and around the world, as her height is 2.21 m.San Feng is actually often mistaken for Yao Defen because they are very much alike. What are the traits that make a woman truly attractive? How does the shape of the nose characterize a person's personality? Why should you have sex as often as possible?
Alicia Jay (USA)
The growth of this lady is also shocking - 1.98 m. She is the most famous fashion blogger, also became popular as the tallest virgin in the world. As she says, it is very difficult for her to meet guys, as they are often much shorter than her, and this creates certain inconveniences. Many people are surprised that she is still a virgin, but Alicia is just waiting for her prince on a white horse. Some speculate that in a couple of years, her story could become a Disney movie.
Rumeisa Gelgi (Turkey)
Doctors diagnosed the girl with a rare disorder known as Weaver's syndrome, which causes rapid growth. And now she is known as the tallest teenager in the world, her height is 2, 13 m.Some people who do not differ with such data say that she was blessed and envy her height, but in fact she already uses canes because it is very difficult for her to move independently. Believe me, there is absolutely nothing to envy here!
Elisani Silva (Brazil)
This is an 18-year-old Brazilian model, whose height is 2.06 m. Although she is still a teenager, she is already planning a wedding and, of course, really wants to have children. Elisani is worried that she might be in trouble with a tumor she had previously, but adoption is still not an option for her. 11 photos taken in the house of one of the richest people in the world 15 beauties who disfigured themselves with plastic surgery Why do cats carry dead animals home

She won several championships in the Soviet Union and Europe, and also took gold medals for the USSR in 1976 and 1980 at the Olympics. Ulyana's height is 2, 10 m.
