World’s tallest man meets with world’s shortest woman in Egypt
The world’s tallest man Sultan Kösen from the southeastern province of Mardin met the world’s shortest woman Jyoti Amge from India on Jan. 27 in Egypt for an event organized by the Egyptian Culture Ministry.
As part of the event, Kösen met with Amge, who stands 62 centimeters and visited Egypt’s popular Gizah pyramid.
The two struck poses for tourists who were in awe with wonder.
Osmanlı also said the two would visit Cairo Tower, Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum, adding that Köse and Amge would hold a press conference after completing their journey.
On Nov. 13, 2014, Kösen and the world’s shortest man, Chandra Bahadur Dangi, came together to celebrate the 10th Annual Guinness World Records Day in London.
Dangi, who is from Nepal, has a height of 55 centimeters. Kösen stooped down to shake hands with 74-year-old opposite the Houses of Parliament in London.
The small and large act joined people across the globe as they attempted to break many different weird and wacky world records, including banging heads, catching spears and throwing thongs.
