World's tallest man finds other half
The world’s tallest man has married a woman who is more than 2 feet shorter than him, a Chinese newspaper reported Wednesday.
Bao Xishun, a 7-foot-9 (2.36m) herdsman from Inner Mongolia, married 5-foot-6 (1.68m) saleswoman Xia Shujian several days ago, the Beijing New reported.
Bao’s 28-year-old bride is half his age and hailed from his hometown of Chifeng even though marriage advertisements were sent around the world, it said.
“After a long and careful selection, the effort has been finally paid off,” the newspaper said.
