New Tallest Man Discovered

Former basketball player, Zhao Liang, may well be the world's tallest man.  He was "discovered" after being treated at a hospital.  He is 8'1" tall, putting him nearly 4" over the current record-holder, Bao Xishun, who is also Chinese.  Liang is now hoping the Guinness World Records will confirm his height and give him the record.

A basketball star until he injured himself a decade ago, Zhao Liang was unemployed until he learned to do magic tricks and play instruments and began performing with a street troupe.  Doctors at the hospital were shocked at his height when he came in to be treated.  They say he should make a full recovery.

Unlike many, Zhao Liang suffers no health problems related to his height.
