World’s Tallest Man made Enes Kanter look short today

At 8’3″, Sultan Kösen is the world’s tallest man. At 6’11”, Enes Kanter is a very, very tall man. The two Turks met today at the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Fulton Science Academy in Atlanta, and the pictures are pretty awesome.

For perspective, here is tall Enes with some children:

And Sultan and Enes with normal-sized adults:

According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, Sultan’s record-breaking height resulted from a tumor affecting his pituitary gland and he actually had to have surgery to stop the growth in 2010. He also holds the record for the largest hands of a living person, each one measuring 28.5 cm (11.22 in) from the wrist to the tip of the middle finger. Take that, Jahlil Okafor!

    Just incredible. I’m pretty sure he will not fit in anything. Must have tailored clothing. Sometimes I feel sorry as he must get gawked at constantly. Hopefully he has a great outlook about it and embraces who he is. Would love to hear him speak. With those long vocal cords he has to have an extremely deep voice, at least that’s what I would guess.
