Today in South Eastern Turkey, I met Sultan Kösen — AKA THE WORLD’S TALLEST MAN!!!
I first heard about Sultan in 2009, when he was awarded a Guinness World Record title for his astounding height of 251 centimeters, or 8 feet 2 inches — that’s almost 3 feet taller than me!
Even though Sultan is a giant on the outside, he’s incredibly gentle, warm and friendly on the inside, and we were all laughing for the 3 hours we spent together.
This was a very special video to make because Sultan invited us into his house, in a tiny village, where his parents (surprisingly) cooked us breakfast after the interview. It was an amazing experience, and quite an emotional morning after hearing about some of the struggles than Sultan has been through in his life (i.e. needing to get multiple surgeries to stop his growth)… But nowadays, he is as happy as can be!
This is the full story of Sultan Kösen!
