Stand proudly at 6ft 10in, Maci Currin, has the longest legs in the world and big aspirations to be a model.
The 17-year-old Texas teen realized she could be running for the Guinness World Record when she was offered a custom pair of leggings.
Her left pin is more than 4ft 5in long while her right is a fraction shorter, knocking Russian basketball star Ekaterina Lisina, with 4ft 4in legs, off the top spot, reports Daily Mail.
“There are definitely negatives to having such long legs like hitting your head walking through doors, getting into cars, trying to find clothes that fit,” Maci Currin said.
However, she urged others with unique physical attributes – “Don’t hide it, embrace it.”
Maci Currin, hailing from Austin, Texas, tops over her mother Trish, 5ft 7in, although her father Cameron is 6ft 5in, while her brother Jacob is 6ft 3in.
When Maci was born – she measured 19 inches, however, when she was nine, she was already 5ft 7in. She has to grow a fair few inches to take the crown of the tallest living woman, held by Sun Fang, 33, from China, at 7ft 3in.
The tallest woman ever measured was also Chinese – Zeng Jinlian, who died in 1982, was 8ft 1in.
