37 year old Leonid Stadnik is 8’5″ tall.
Leonid Stadnik, who according to the Guinness World Records is the world’s tallest human, says his condition has also taught him that the world is filled with kindhearted strangers.
Since his recognition by Ukrainian record keepers four years ago, and by Guinness last year, people from all over Ukraine and the world have shipped him outsized clothing, provided his home with running water and recently presented him with a giant bicycle.
Story and a photo of Leonid on a bicycle is at the Huffington Post.
Here’s video of Leonid Stadnik learning to ride the specially built bicycle that was gifted to him.
