Russian model, Ekaterina Lisina, is already the tallest woman in her native country and 6-foot 9-inches, she’s got me beat. She also has the longest legs, which come in at an astonishing 52.4 inches. She won the bronze medal with the Russian women’s national basketball team, at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

The current worlds tallest model is Amazon Eve at 6-foot 8-inches. Lisina says she’s wanted to be a model since she was young, but she started her basketball career at 16 and was unable to do so.

“Basically I had to choose between modelling and basketball and of course there was no question because with basketball I had talent,” Lisina said.

Being as tall as she is, she’s used to garnering attention and she’s totally okay with it.

“I do like the attention and I hope after I get the title I am going to get even more attention,” she said. “I think my long legs can definitely help my modelling career because there aren’t so many models with such long legs.”

She said she dealt with some bullying as a child, but now she’s more than comfortable with her body. And why shouldn’t she be, she looks great.
