The New Tallest Man

There’s a new tallest man in the world. His name is Leonid Stadnik, and he lives in the Ukraine. For years, he’s refused to be officially measured because he hates his height. It actually sounds like a sad story — he won’t look at himself in the mirror, he had to quit his job on a farm because he couldn’t afford special shoes to keep his huge feet warm. On the positive side, he was finally measured because he saw a doctor who confirmed that his brain tumor, which caused his growth and threatened his life, has naturally died off.

Stadnik is taking the record from Bao Xishun, who has had a string of adventures recently: saving dolphins, searching for a wife, and meeting the world’s shortest man.
