In an interview with Daily Express, Ekaterina revealed her goal to erase some records in Guinness:

“The record is held at the moment by Amazon Eve and she is 6ft 8in, which is smaller than me. I really want to be in the book of world records as the world’s tallest model.”

“I also think I have a chance to be awarded the world’s longest legs. My legs are around 52.4 inches, which is longer than the current record holder.”

Her legs alone measures 52.4 inches.

Lisinia said she was always taller than everyone else in her age group. However, it was only when she was 24 years old that she felt that her being tall is attractive.

“I only really realized I was attractive when I was about 24 years old.”

“I feel really comfortable in my body. I like my long legs, I like my long body — everything about it.”


Lisinia is also very athletic. She was a former basketball player with a successful career in women’s basketball in Russia. She played for various teams such as the Russian women’s squad in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, which earned her a bronze medal.

She is also the tallest among her family, however, her father said her height is no surprise to them. It runs in their blood.

In an interview, her dad shared:

“When we were picking up Ekaterina from the hospital, we noticed straight away that her legs were really long and her body mainly consisted of them. [She] got them from her parents.”

Her brother, Sergei is 6 foot, 6 inches tall, her dad is 6 feet, 5 inches while her mother is also more than 6 feet tall.

Lisinia dreamt of becoming a model since she was a teenager. But her height and athleticism gave her an advantage to basketball and it turned to a professional career. After her retirement in sports, Ekaterina started to pursue modelling.

Recently, the developer of League of Legends, Riot Games, has filed a lawsuit against Shanghai Moontoon Technology, the studio responsible for Mobile Legends. The lawsuit, which was filed at the Central District Court of California, raises the alleged copyright infringement of League of Legends through multiple mobile titles.

According to the lawsuit, the games in question are Mobile Legends: 5v5 MOBA, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, and Magic Rush: Heroes. Riot Games argued that these titles, in one way or another, contained “a vast array of elements that were directly and deliberately appropriated” from League of Legends. These include, but not limited to, artwork, characters, monster and map designs, and units.

If you are a big fan of watching movies at home, we're sure you know how valuable the 'pause' button is. For example, the tool allows you to stop the film for a while if you are feeling overwhelmed. That way, you can take a breather and digest things first before proceeding. Other than that, the button can be useful too if you need to pee or get some food. Well that's the huge advantage of watching on your couch as opposed to sitting in a theater, right?

In other instances though, hitting the pause button is also perfect for catching little details that most casual viewers might miss in first viewing. Case in point, this list compiled by Providr gives us the 28 most paused moments in movie history - like ever!
