The Tallest Man got Married

The world's shortest man (He pingping) shook hands with the world's tallest man (Bao Xishun) in an historic encounter in July 2007.

The meeting between He Pingping - he only reaches 73 centimeters (2.4 feet) - and Bao Xishun - he towers above everyone at an amazing 2.36 meters (7.9 feet) tall - took place in their native China. Both these men are from the same region of Inner Mongolia. They are here to celebrate Bao's wedding ceremony.

Hundreds, some of the travelling for hours, turned up to see the tallest man wed a woman two-thirds his height. The 56 year old herdsman Bao married saleswoman Xia Shujuan, who is 1.68 meters (5 ft 6 inches) tall and just 29 years old.

He searched the world for a companion but ended up with a bride from his home town of Chifeng in Inner Mongolia. Bao dressed in a shimmering blue silk coat he was carried t his wedding on the back of a mobile yurt pulled by camels. Bao was confirmed as the tallest person by the Guinness book of records in 2006.
