Russian Model Gets Two Guinness World Records For Her Extremely Long Legs

As if one Guinness World Record isn’t impressive enough, this woman actually has two!

As if scoring one world record wasn’t impressive enough, this female model from Russia managed to get two because of her amazing long legs. As reported recently, Guinness World Records has officially confirmed Ekaterina Lisina as the new title holder for the Longest Legs in the female category.

Representatives from Guinness visited Ekaterina in Penza, Russia, her hometown, and had her legs measured by independent professionals, as per the guidelines implemented by the organization. A seamstress and a doctor each took measurements from her heel to her hip.

Those are really lengthy legs!

In an official post on the Guinness website, we learn that Ekaterina’s legs measured an “unparalleled” 132.8 cm long for the left leg and 132.2 cm (52.0 in) long for the right leg.

According to the 6’8” model, being tall actually runs in the family since her father and mother stands at 6’5” and 6’1” respectively. Meanwhile, her brother has a height of 6”6”. She later decided to send her application to Guinness World Records because she wanted “to be an inspiration to girls who are not very confident.”

Why? Well, she’s had several struggles of her own. As a tall girl, it’s always hard for her to find trousers and shoes that fit her size. Plus she always feels awkward when trying to squeeze into airplane and car seats.

Are there any advantages to having the world’s longest legs? Ekaterina replies in the affirmative!

For example, she pointed out:

“I can walk much faster than other people.”

Other than that, she also pursued a career in basketball and eventually won bronze medal as she played for Russia in the 2008 Olympics.

However, she decided to give up sports for her real dream – becoming a model.

She’s been working professionally as a model for more than one year now and because of it, she also got a second Guinness World Record title for being the Tallest Professional Model.

Ekaterina says it “feels amazing” to hold two titles in the Guinness World Records.

What an unbelievable transformation.

We all love to see transformation photos of ugly ducklings. And we know how growing a beard can totally change a man's look. Just like then 21-year-old Gwilym Pugh, who decided to grow some facial hair. He not only became a total hottie but also landed a job as a model.

What's incredible is if you'll see before photos of Pugh, who looked nothing like his now 33-year-old self. Pugh received an advice from a barber that he should grow a beard.

It’s oddly satisfying to watch.

While some of us love the idea of doing something we love, others are more about doing anything random. One day, a guy, who is known as wallacemk or simply Wallace, was playing around with matches. All of a sudden, an interesting thought came to his mind and he felt the need to follow it.

A couple of months later, his project took over the Internet. Wallace said the entire thing, which is basically a giant sphere composed of 42,000 matches, cost him around $500. Although gluing them altogether proved to be a rigorous task, it did not discourage him from completing the project. And do you know the next big thing he did? He set it on fire!
