Uliana Semionova (Soviet Union)
Uliana Semionova – a near-legendary Soviet-Latvian basketball player of the 70s and 80s, won multiple championships in the Soviet Union and Europe, as well as gold medals for USSR in 1976 and 1980 Olympics. At 6’11” in (2.10 m) Uliana is, of course, not the tallest female basketball player, but… she did have the biggest shoe size – 21 (US) / 58 (EU)!
Malee Duangdee (Thailand)
Till August of 2016, Malee Duangdee was the tallest woman in Thailand, and the 2nd tallest woman in all of Asia. Her height was 6’10” (2.08 m), and unfortunately for her, the taller you are the more chances you have to get a heart attack.
Sun Fang (China)
Sun Fang was born in ’87, and is currently the tallest woman in China at 7’3” (2.21 m), and the tallest living woman in the world. Sun Fang actually often mistaken for Yao Defen because they look quite similar.
Alicia Jay (United States)
Hey, look, it’s not yet another b-ball player! Alicia Jay, 6’6” in (1.98m) tall, is a famous fashion blogger, also known as the world’s tallest virgin. She says that dating has been difficult because of her height, which should not be a surprise, and that she is still waiting for the right guy. I’d say in a couple of years her story could become a Disney movie.
