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.
