Leonid Stadnik of Ukraine towers above us at 8 feet & 5 inches. But since he refuses to submit to an official measurement, Guinness refuses to recognize him. Because of this refusal, some rumors have started saying that he's actually just below 8 feet tall. Who's right? Perhaps we will never know (until he's dead and someone finally measure his officially).
