Guinness World Records says teen has the world’s longest legs: ‘You don’t really fit into the category of “normal”‘
A Texan teenager enters the Guinness World Records as a woman and teenager with the longest legs in the world.
Maci Currin is 17 years old and stands at 6 feet, 10 inches. Her left leg is 53.255 cm long while her right is 52.874 cm long. According to the Guinness, their legs make up 60 percent of their total height.
"They don't really fit into the 'normal' category," Currin told Guinness. "You are unique, you have something different and people are drawn to it."
Currin's father is 6 feet, 5 inches and her brother is 6 feet, 4 inches. But the teen told Guinness that she never had a growth spurt, instead growing 4 to 5 inches each year.
"I was never bullied for my legs ... I was bullied because I was taller than anyone," Currin told Guinness. "About the second year or so, I just stopped caring about what people thought of me and when I just stopped caring about it, I wasn't affected."
Fortunately, Currin was able to find her voice on TikTok, where she has 1.7 million followers. However, the world is not exactly made for its greatest citizens. She has a couple of everyday problems.
"Certain cars that I can't even fit in because my legs are too long," she said. "When I go to a normal store, I don't like anything because they don't really make clothes my size, especially pants [and] leggings. I have to get them made to measure."
Ultimately, Currin chose the Guinness title to help tall women feel more confident.
"I hope tall women can see that size is a gift," she told Guinness. "And that you shouldn't be ashamed that you are tall. You should really accept it."
