Longest Legs in the World [PHOTOS]
She’s all that and a seet of legs. The longest female legs measuring almost 4 feet, 4 inches long, belong to Svetlana Pankratova, according to Guinness World Records.
Um, that’s a 54″ inseam!
Svetlana, who is a 6-foot-5 Russian native is, as one can expect, an assistant coach for the George Mason High School girls’ basketball team.
Before becoming a coach in Falls Church, the woman with the longest legs in the world also played basketball in Portugal, Israel, and Spain before retiring in 2000.
Pankratova told the News-Press that after a friend raised the idea that she might have the longest legs, it took six years of documentation and work with the Guinness folks to achieve the record. But as she told numerous interviewers, she’s proud to have the record and hopes no one else breaks it.
Not surprisingly, she holds a record for Virginia Commonwealth University with the most blocked shots in a career, 176.
Now, it turns out, Svetlana has a new neighbor who is also in the Guinness Book of World Records. Arlingtonian Annie Hawkins-Turner — her stage name is Norma Stitz — has the Guinness Book of World Records’ record for world’s largest natural breasts.
I see the stage being set for the best block party…ever.
The whole of Virginia, not just the parts close to D.C., can lay claim to a host of impressive world records. Notable among them: most cloned pigs born in one litter, largest ship sunk intentionally and largest gathering of people dressed as vampires.
