Ekaterina Lisina holds the Guinness World Record for having the longest legs among women, with a left leg measuring 52.3 inches and a right leg measuring 52 inches. Standing at 6’9”, she started her career in basketball and then moved into modeling, leveraging her height as an asset.
Born into a family of tall individuals, with a father at 6’5”, a mother at 6’1” and a brother at 6’6”, Lisina has made the most of her height and genetics. She is also recognized as the world’s tallest model and has the biggest female feet in Russia, size 13.
In her teenage years, Lisina shifted from basketball to modeling and embraced her beauty in her mid-20s. Despite facing difficulties at school due to her height, she wants to be an inspiration to girls who lack confidence.
Her height often poses challenges in her daily life such as finding pants that fit and sitting on a standard airplane seat. However, she is grateful for her height, saying “God blessed me with a fabulous height so that I can reach the stars”. She has also won a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics as part of the Russian national basketball team.
