Turkish woman enters Guinness World Records for being the world's tallest living woman


Guinness World Records announced that a Turkish woman, who is more than two meters tall, is officially the tallest living woman in the world.

Romesa Celci, from Turkey's Karabuk province, said she hopes her condition, which results from Weaver's syndrome, a rare congenital disease that causes rapid growth, will help inspire others to accept themselves.

The condition starts from the prenatal stage and continues until the youth stage, and is characterized by advanced bone maturation and neurological, skeletal and facial defects.

"Every flaw can be turned into an advantage for yourself, so accept yourself as you are, be aware of your potential and do your best," said Gilji, who is 215.16cm (7ft 0.7in).


The 24-year-old also set a world record in 2014, when she was named the tallest living teenager, and has since used her platform to advocate for others with rare conditions.

Due to mobility issues related to her condition, Gilji mostly uses a wheelchair to get around, although she can walk with the help of a walking frame.

Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records, said it was an "honour" to welcome her back into the record books.

"Her indomitable spirit and pride in standing out from the crowd is inspiring," he added.



It is noteworthy that the tallest living man in the world is Sultan Kosen, also from Turkey, with a length of 251 cm (8 feet 2.8 inches), which entered the encyclopedia in 2018.

The tallest woman ever recorded was Zeng Jinlian, from Hunan Province in China, who measured 246.3 cm (8 ft 1 in) before her death in 1982.
