At 6'9", she is the tallest model in the world

Last updated on: October 05, 2017 10:48 IST

This Russian model has been officially declared to have the 'world's longest legs'. 

Ekaterina Lisinaru, 29, has legs measuring a staggering 52 inches in length!

 

A former basketball player, she features in the new Guinness World Records 2018 and fits into a 47 (EU) shoe size -- that's way bigger than the average feet of women across the world.

In an interview, Ekaterina confessed that she wanted to become a model since the age of 16. But initially her professional basketball career didn't let her do so.

She added that her parents too were tall -- her mother is 6 ft and her father, 6 ft 5 inches.

Back in school, Ekaterina was often bullied for being the tallest girl in her class.
