Curious to know who they are? Let’s jump into the list.
Lin Yü-chih – 67.5 cm
Until 2009, Lin Yü-chih was with the Guinness Book of Record as the shortest man in the world. Measuring 2 ft. 2.58 inches in height, Lin, who resides in Taipei, Taiwan, suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, a genetic disorder, also known as brittle bone disease. Osteogenesis imperfecta hinders bone growth, therefore stunting height. A social activist who was once the subject of a Channel 4 documentary, Lin Yü-chih works as an author, and is also the founder of the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Association.
