A 19-year-old office worker could step into the record books for having the longest female legs in the world. Lisa Hall, 6ft 3ins tall, of Heybridge, Essex, says her legs measure 49 inches from hip to heel.
Her measurements are five inches longer than the woman listed as having the longest legs in the world by the Guinness Book of Records.
A spokesman for the Guinness Book of Records said German model Nadja Auermann - who has legs measuring 44 inches - had held the record since 1999.
He said Miss Hall had a good chance of becoming the new world record holder. "To be listed in the book she would have to contact us so we can verify the claim. I would urge her to get in touch."
Woman shows off longest legs in the WorldThe woman with the world's longest legs has been showing them off in New York's Times Square.
It is a woman's dream to have a sexy pair of long legs, but ask the woman with the longest legs in the world how does it exactly feel to actually own a pair. For Svetlana Pankratova, having the world's longest legs and being recognized for it has its advantages and disadvantages.
The 36-year-old, who had recently appeared in Times Sq. to receive certification of the Guinness world record for the world's longest legs, stands 6 foot 5 inches tall and had been encouraged by her friend to enter her legs into the record books.
"I wasn''t too interested in the idea at first, but she convinced me," the New York Daily News quoted the Russian record-breaker, currently in the U.S. to promote this Thursday''s Guinness World Records Day 2008, as saying.
Svetlana Pankratova, who is also known as Queen of the Longest Legs, has been travelling around the globe showing off her long limbs ever since she broke the world record.
Ms Pankratova's long legs and short skirt drew a large crowd of admirers as she made her US debut.
Her 51.9 inch legs were measured and she was awarded an official Guinness World Record certificate.
Ms Pankratova, who stands 6ft 5 inches tall, says her height and long legs have not held her back romantically.
She said: "I have a boyfriend who is 6' 1", so I'm fine. I don't really mind dating a shorter person. He doesn't have to be taller, obviously not someone who is like 5' 2" either. It's not a problem."
The Russian's legwork is part of the run-up to Guinness World Records Day, which will see more than 200,000 people from all over the world display their unusual attributes and talents.
World's smallest man has met the woman with the world's longest legsStanding at just 2ft 5in high, He Pingping, from China, has been officially named the smallest man in the world.
Svetlana Pankratova, meanwhile, owns the longest legs in the world, which stretch to 132cm.
Mr Pingping barely came up to Ms Pankratova's knees at a bizarre photoshoot held to mark the launch of the new Guinness Book of World Records.
But the pair seemed rather happy in each other's company as they posed for photos on Trafalgar Square's steps in central London.
In January 2007, Mr Pingping was invited to take part on a television programme in Tokyo, and has since become somewhat of an icon.
It is rumoured he is now so protective of his image, he refuses to have his photo taken unless he is paid a substantial fee.
While Ms Pankratova might have the longest legs in the world, she is not the tallest.
Last month, Sandy Allen, at 7ft 7in, recognized as the world's tallest woman, died aged 53.
In July 2007, Pingping, an internet phenomenon, met with the world's tallest man Bao Xishun.
Earlier this month, it was revealed the midget who shot to fame as the world's smallest bodybuilder had been snapped up by a leading US talent agent and was bound for Hollywood.
Chuck Harris, who represents over 10,000 of the world's most unusual acts, is convinced Aditya "Romeo" Dev is capable of becoming one Tinseltown's biggest stars.
