Bao Xishun was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's tallest man alive when he was given this title on January 15th, 2005. He is also known as Colin Barnes "The Mast".

Bao Xishun was born in China in 1951, and he was a herdsman form inner Mongolia.

His height is measured as 2.361 meters, which is 7 feet and 8.95 inches tall. He does not suffer from any growth disorder at all, and his height was normal until the age of 16.

It was then that his height started increasing incredibly and, after 7 years, he reached his present height. The reasons for his growth and height are unknown.

Xishun had a normal life before his height started increasing. He had joined the People's Liberation Army and played basketball for the army team. However, he was discharged once his height increased so much.

After his mother's death when he was 40 years old. Bao was given a job at a restaurant as a greeter. Which is where his height started to be noticed by the media. They applied for the Guinness record on his behalf, and he was found to be 2mm taller to the then-world's tallest man, Radhouane Charbib.

On the 24th of March, 2007, Bao Xishun was married to Xiang Gonghe, a 28-year-old saleswoman.

There is no Japanese man of 8'11". The tallest man ever is Robert Wadlow, from Alton, Illinois. He was 8 feet 11.1 inches; had a disease, and didn't stop growing until his death in 1940, at 22 years.

The tallest man in the world who is still living today is Sultan Kosen. He is from Turkey and measures 8'5".

Come on, get the facts.
