Chinese teen named Ren Keyu has been recently named as world’s tallest teenager by the Guinness Book of World Records. Always towering over his classmates, Ren Keyu stands at a staggering height of 7 feet and 3 inches tall and he is just 14 years old.
As per the reports published in The Sun, the teenager boy is currently studying in his junior high school and is pursuing education from the city of Leshan in the southwest province of China. The teenage boy currently holds the status of world’s tallest male teenager. The news has been confirmed by the officials of Guinness Book of World Records.
The measurement for height was carried out during the month of October as the officials visited Ren at his place in China. The officials were highly surprised to know that the teenager stands at a towering height of 221.03 centimetres.
The information about Ren being the tallest teenager of the world can be seen on the official website of Guinness Book of World Records. Hailing from China, Ren has become the first male under the age of 18 who holds this record under his name.
The Guinness Book of World Records also reported that the teenager possesses a customized set of furniture made especially for his studies. In his conversation with The Sun, Ren shared that initially he felt a bit awkward because of his height in front of his classmates.
Ren also revealed that he was earlier speculated to be a senior in the class because of his staggering height. According to Ren, his height used to bother him in the initial years of his life but later he got used to this fact.
However, Ren accepted his height and applied for the Guinness book of world records and brought something positive out of his towering height. 14-year old teenager also mentioned that he was interested in knowing whether he can achieve any record for his height or not. He stepped forward to send the application to Guinness World Records.
Ren surpassed the record of Kevin Bradford as the tallest teenager of the world. A resident of the USA, Kevin Bradford made the world record for the tallest teenager when he was 16 years old and his height was measured at 7’1”.
