Shortest man in the world

Shortest man

uinness World Records is awaiting the final pieces of evidence before deciding whether Nepal’s shortest man can be named the shortest in the world, a spokeswoman for the company said Friday. Khagendra Thapa Magar, 14, is 20 inches tall and weighs 10 pounds. Guinness does not have categories for shortest children, but a person under 18 years old can be named the shortest man as long as it can be shown he is fully grown. “We’re still looking into it and waiting for the final bit of evidence,” spokeswoman Kate White said. “We have the medical report, but are still waiting for the birth certificate. We’ll also want to speak to doctors. … We want to make sure of that he is fully grown.” She said Guinness received the application last month, and that she did not anticipate a decision for another week or two. Min Bahadur Thapa, president of the Khagendra Thapa Magar Foundation, claimed their closest competitor was 25 inches tall. Thapa and family members are currently touring south Nepal, seeking support for the foundation, which was set up to collect funds for the boy.

if there is no other contestant and he is happy to be named such, physical appearance can also tell besides records. he should be named. one condition, men dont grow tall after maturity. if tall again…punishment for lying.
