Guinness World Records crowns 24-year-old woman over 7ft as 'tallest woman in the world'



A Turkish woman who stands at more than seven feet tall has set a new world record as the tallest female alive.



Rumeysa Gelgi, 24, from Karab√ľk Province, Turkey, stands at a whopping 7 feet 0.7 inches, earning her a new entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the "tallest living woman".



She has an exceptionally rare genetic condition named Weaver syndrome, which has accelerated her growth.



This isn't the first time she has been featured in the Guinness Book of Records.



She was crowned "tallest teenager alive" in 2014.



Ms Gelgi uses a wheelchair because of some of the mobility issues created by her condition. However, she can also move around with the assistance of a walking frame.







Her Weaver syndrome also means she has certain features that are larger in proportion than usual, such as her hands.



Due to her impressive stature, she has been the victim of teasing and abuse from members of the public in the past, but she says that this has only made her stronger.







She said: "Every disadvantage can be turned into an advantage for yourself so accept yourself for who you are, be aware of your potential and do your best".

"I like being different from everyone else," she added. "It's interesting and makes me feel special."







She also said that there are some advantages to being such a tall woman, including easy access to high places.



Gelgi has used her fame to bring public attention to the lives of other people with rare conditions.
