Texan teen Maci Currin has secured her place in the Guinness Book of World Records 2021 for having the world’s longest legs and the longest legs on a teenager.
As per Guinness Book, 17-year-old Maci Currin – who is encouraging everyone to ’embrace’ their bodies – stands tall at 6 feet 10 inches. Her legs stretch almost a metre and a half in length!
While her left leg measures 135.267 cm (53.255 in), her right leg measures 134.3 cm (52.874 in). While her parents and family members are tall, none of her other siblings or parents quite match her height.
Guinness Book says Maci’s legs actually make up for 60 per cent of her total height! She wanted to go after this record title to inspire tall people everywhere to embrace their height.
Having such long legs comes with both its benefits and challenges – including the reactions of those around her.
“I was never bullied for my legs… I was bullied because I was taller than everyone,” Maci shared with Guinness Book. “Around sophomore year I just stopped caring what people thought of me and once I just stopped caring I wasn’t affected by anything,” she continued.
Although it can be hard to fit through certain doorways, get into cars, or have clothes fit just right – her long legs also give her lots of advantages, especially when it comes to playing on her high school’s volleyball team.
Maci first realized she had longer than average legs back in 2018, when someone asked her if she wanted a custom pair of leggings after she was unable to find any that fitted her.
A sprightly teenager who enjoys making videos, Maci is now looking at enrolling in a college in the UK and achieve the record for being the world’s tallest professional model.
