Guinness world records unveils new tallest man

Bao Xishun (also known as Xi Shun; born 1951) is a herdsman from Inner Mongolia, China, recognized by Guinness World Records as one of the world's tallest living men. On September 17, 2009, Turkey's Sultan Kösen overtook Bao Xishun as the tallest living man in the world, when he was measured by Guinness World Records, standing 2.51 metres (8 ft 3 in) tall.

Bao Xishun worked at the Chifeng City local hospital for several months. Bao suffers from rheumatism. Bao Xishun claims to have been of normal height until he was sixteen years old. Bao served in the People's Liberation Army for three years. He later returned to Inner Mongolia to live with his mother. He soon became known as the world's tallest living man. In 2005 he became the world's tallest man. In December 2006, Bao Xishun was asked by veterinarians to assist them in removing shards of plastic from the stomachs of two dolphins. The dolphins had accidentally swallowed the shards, which had settled in their stomachs and caused a loss of appetite and depression. Veterinarians had failed to remove them, so Bao Xishun used his 1.06-metre-long arms to reach into the dolphins' stomachs and remove the plastic manually.
