Head to the sky, just about

Ekaterina Lisina, twenty-nine, gets a Wikipedia page because of her basketball prowess: she played for various teams for a decade, including a stint with the Russian Olympic team in 2008. (They took the bronze.) And they mention, purely in passing, her height: six feet, nine inches (2.04 m).

Right now, though, she’s had enough of sportsball, and wants to go on to something else: modeling. Oh, and getting into Guinness:

The Olympic medallist and former basketball player, from Penza, now wants to set the world record for being the world’s tallest model as she switches careers — as well as being awarded a prize [for] having the world’s longest legs.

The number you want to hear: 52.4 inches. 1.33 meters. You’ve heard of legs that go on for days? These take a good fortnight.

She is generally acknowledged to be Russia’s tallest woman, and you don’t even want to imagine her shoe size.

Oh, you do? She takes a 47 European, which is about a 14 US.

Guinness hasn’t come calling yet, but surely they will at some point.

    My entire body is less than 15″ taller than just her legs.

    I’m assuming she has a tailor of her own.

    The video has a couple of scenes where she’s shopping, but she doesn’t seem to find very much.

    How can she be a model when she is so much taller than all the other models? It’s not like the clothes will fit her with some tape and safety pins. Maybe a swimsuit or nude model. the swimsuit fit because most of the height of very tall people is generally in their legs, so the Maillot will come right off the rack. Larger size women’s shoes are more easily found now thanks to transvestites.

    Yeah, I don’t see her getting a whole lot of Fall-Winter runway work.
