The 17-year-old Marcy Colin from the United States has the title of “Longest leg (female)” and “Longest leg of adolescent” in the world.
Marcy’s left leg is 135.267 cm long, her right leg is 134.3 cm long, and her height is as high as 2.08 meters. Her legs account for 60% of her total height! She wants to break this record to inspire tall people around the world to bravely accept their height.
Marcy’s family members are relatively tall, but no one can match her height.
Having such long legs has both benefits and challenges-including the reactions of those around you.
“People bully me not because of how long my legs are, but because I am taller than everyone else.” Ma Xi shared.
“When I was in my second year of college, I no longer cared about what others thought of me. Once I stopped caring about these, nothing could affect me anymore.” She continued.
“I hope tall girls can see that height is a gift, and you shouldn’t be ashamed of it-you really should accept it.”
Although the long legs make it a little troublesome for Marcy to enter the doorway or car, or it is difficult to buy fitting clothes, her long legs do bring many advantages, especially when she played on the volleyball team in high school.
Marcy first realized that her legs were longer than the average length in 2018, when someone asked her if she wanted a pair of customized leggings, because she really couldn’t buy the right ones.
Then she checked the relevant information to see if she might break the long-legged world record, and now she has “swaggered” into the “Guinness Book of World Records”.
After winning the title of Guinness World Records, Massi encouraged those who want to break the world record: “Don’t let anyone change your mind, act and fight for it.”
She is now quite popular on TikTok, and she hopes to be able to enter a British university in the future and become the world’s highest professional model.
