Great World Record Makers
.....WORLD RECORD MAKERS.....
A few months ago, the world's shortest man, He Pingping, age 21, died after
developing chest pains while filming a television show in Italy. Pingping
suffered from primordial dwarfism, a condition which kept him from ever growing
taller than 73 cm (2 feet 5 inches) tall. Pingping was recognized by the
Guinness World Records organization, who also held a "World Records Day" last
November, encouraging people all over the world to set their own records.
Collected here are a group of superlatives, recent photos of world records and
record attempts around the world.
