The Tallest Man in America

Igor Vovkovinskiy, the 27-year-old Minnesota resident is now officially the tallest man in America, according to Guinness World Records.

Igor is 7 feet, 8 1/3 inches tall -- beating George Bell, the 7'8" deputy sheriff from Norfolk, Virginia.

Vovkovinskiy was raised in the Ukraine, but moved to Minnesota, USA when doctors at the Mayo Clinic attempted to remove the pituitary gland tumor that they believe is responsible for his great height. The surgery failed, and Vovkovinskiy kept growing.

Now, the new tallest man in America wears 24 10-E shoes, one size bigger than Bell's big boots. He lives in a house with cathedral-style ceilings, and sleeps in a 9-foot-long bed.

i went to school with igor and he is is very tall and im sure he is as tall as they said he is. As they said it is not a natural height most likely caused by his puitary gland, and its a remarkable feet that he has lived long enough to become the tallest person in the USA.
