Shortest man meets leggiest woman

Published Wednesday September 17th, 2008

China's He Pingping stands 2'5

LONDON - Trafalgar Square routinely serves as a stage for mimes, jugglers and other acts, but the tourist attraction drew an exceptionally curious crowd yesterday when the shortest man who can walk met the woman with the longest legs.


He Pingping of Inner Mongolia, the world’s smallest man sits underneath Svetlana Pankratova of Russia, as they pose at Trafalgar Square in London yesterday. Pingping holds the Guinness World Record for the smallest man and Pankratova holds the Guinness World Record for the longest leg of any woman.

He Pingping, of China, stands precisely two feet 5.37 inches tall. The 20-year-old was born with a type of dwarfism.
He called Svetlana Pankratova's legs "very beautiful."
The two met, with He standing at Pankratova's knees, to publicize the release of "Guinness World Records 2009." This year's version of the popular book is due out Wednesday.
Pankratova, who is Russian but lives in Spain, has legs that are nearly 52 inches or 132 centimetres long. Her upper body has nearly typical proportions, giving her a giraffe-like appearance.
Dressed in a bright-blue mini-dress and low-heeled pumps, Pankratova, 36, said she liked her legs, though they can complicate things. "It's hard to find clothes, especially pants," she said.
She isn't the tallest woman on record. Sandy Allen, of Shelbyville, Ind., who died recently, held that title, according to the book. And He is the smallest man who is mobile, the books says.
The latest edition of the book lists pop star Britney Spears as the most-searched person on the Internet and the television show "Lost" as the most-downloaded show of all time.
The book has been around for half a century. About 3.5 million copies are sold each year, according to editor-in-chief Craig Glenday.

I bet he's thinking he has a great job just sittin' there looking at her
Very cute.
"Tiime has been wastin' away...You know time doesn't wait for nobody to find what they're after
It just keeps on rolling down the deep canyons
And through the green meadows
into the broad ocean..."
