World Tallest Living Woman: Guinness World Records reveals astonishing length- The Guinness record for being the tallest woman in the world is held by Rumesa Gelgi of Turkey. Rumesa Gelgi has a total height of 7 feet 0.7 inches (215.16 cm). After measuring the height, Guinness World Records gave Rumesa Gelgi the title of the tallest woman living. The world’s tallest man’s record is also recorded in the name of Sultan Kosen of Turkey. His height was measured at 8 feet 2.8 inches (251 cm) in 2018.
Rumesa suffers from Weaver’s syndrome
It has been told in the report that Rumesa is suffering from Gelegi Weaver Syndrome. People suffering from this syndrome keep growing abnormally in height. In many cases, people suffering from Weaver’s syndrome have an enlarged body, but the size of their head remains small in proportion. Along with this, the victim’s brain also does not work normally and he suffers from intellectual disability.
The name has already been registered in the Guinness Book
After being named in the Guinness World Records, Rumesa Gelgi said that every loss can turn into a gain for yourself so accept yourself for who you are, be aware of your potential and do your best. In 2014, Gelgi entered the Guinness World Records as the longest-living teenager. Now in 2021, she has also held the record for being the longest living woman.

Rumesa Gelgi cannot lead a normal life due to Weaver’s syndrome. They have to use a wheelchair or walking frame to walk. Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday said it was an honor to welcome Rumesa back to the record books. His indomitable spirit and pride to stand out from the crowd is an inspiration to all.
