World: 10 Tallest People in Every Country

Sultan Kosen from Turkey is the tallest living person in the world, at a whopping 8ft 5, and if you thought that was tall, Robert Wadlow from the United States is the tallest man ever in recorded history at a gigantic 8ft 11, with an armspan of 9ft 6, and a standing reach of over 12ft. If he had continued to live, he would be predicted to have reached a height of over 10ft. This is a list of the tallest living person of each country and their heights.
