Standing proudly at 6ft 10in, meet the 17-year-old with the longest legs in the world – and big aspirations to be a model. Maci Currin only realised she could be in the running for the Guinness World Record when she was offered a custom pair of leggings. Her left leg 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.
Maci, from Austin, Texas, towers over her mother Trish, who is an above-average 5ft 7in – although her father Cameron is 6ft 5in, while her brother Jacob is 6ft 3in. She has to grow a fair few inches to take the crown of tallest living woman, held by Sun Fang, 33, from China, at 7ft 3in.
