Elisany Silva (Brazil)
Meet a 18-year old Brazilian model – Elisany Silva, measuring 6’9” (2.06 m) tall. Although she’s still a teen, she’s already planning her wedding and, of course, having kids. Elisany is worried that she might have problems conceiving because of the tumor she had, but adoption is very much still an option for her.
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)!
Zeng Jinlian (China)
And finally, #1 tallest woman who ever lived – Zeng Jinlian. There were only 17 people who reached 8 feet (2.44 m) tall and Zeng Jinlian is the only woman among them. Sadly, she didn’t even live long enough to see her 18th birthday. She died in 1982 at the age of 17, measuring 8’2” (2.49 m) tall.
