A towering Russian model who overcame bullying to become an Olympic star has officially set a new record for having the world’s longest women’s legs.  
Ekaterina Lisina, who stands at 6ft 9in, has two Guinness records to her name having also been crowned the world’s tallest model.
The 29-year-old’s left leg measures 132.8 cm (52.2 in), while her right leg is 132.2 cm (52.0 in) long.

She comes from a very tall family, with her brother measuring 6ft 6in, her father at 6ft 5in and her mother at 6ft 1in.
The model says it “feels amazing” to become a Guinness World Records title holder and hopes it will increase the positive attention she gets day to day.
Lisina overcame being bullied about her height as a teenager to achieve her dreams of becoming a professional model.
In 2008, she played in the Russian Olympic basketball team and won a bronze medal at the Beijing Games.

Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday said: “We might have been inspired this year by fictional superheroes, but the focus for this edition is celebrating the planet’s real-life superheroes, who come in all shapes and sizes.
“We believe that everyone has a superpower that’s waiting to be discovered, and our search for the latest record-breaking talent has brought us into contact with some truly superhuman characters.”
