Ekaterina Lisina has the longest legs among women in the world, is the tallest model in the world and, as far as can be judged, has the largest female feet in Russia.
Ekaterina Lisina holds the Guinness World Record for longest legs among women. According to the institute, her left leg measures 52.3 inches while her right leg is just 52 inches long.
The model is 6ft 9in and realized early on that her height would be one of her greatest assets. With a successful career in basketball, where height is of the essence, the young Russian’s vision allowed her to find favor in both the sports and modeling industries at an early age.
Ekaterina Lisina owes everything to the genetics of her family, since not a single member is less than two meters tall. Aside from her 6’6″ brother, 6’5″ father and 6’1″ mother, Lisina’s son is already much taller than his peers – and he hasn’t even hit puberty yet.
However, according to the Inquisitr, glaringly towering over most others wasn’t always a plus. It’s not exactly the most inviting trait for shy, insecure teenagers — although it has given her plenty of opportunities outside of school that she has successfully leveraged into a lucrative identity.
Ekaterina Lisina’s early life
Born on October 15, 1987 in Penza, Russia, Yekaterina Viktorovna Lisina holds another Guinness World Record directly attributed to her long-legged genetics. According to Metro, she is officially the tallest model in the world at 6ft 9in. As far as one can tell, at size 13, she also has the largest female feet in all of Russia.
Her father, Viktor Lisina, remembered noticing his daughter’s remarkably long legs right after she was born.
“When we picked up Ekaterina from the hospital, we immediately noticed that her legs were really long and her body was mostly made up of them,” he said. “[She] got them from her parents.”
The 31-year-old record-holder has since developed an entire ethos around her body in terms of what she’s been able to accomplish with it. Doors have opened – and she’s not afraid to use those legs to walk through them.
“God has blessed me with an incredible height so I can reach the stars,” she said.
The Olympic athlete
“By the time I was 16, I was already 6ft 6,” Lisina said. “I’ve been playing basketball professionally since I was 15.”
For her brother Sergei, what Lisina achieved before she was 30 – playing professional basketball, representing her country at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, using her height to launch a modeling career – was nothing short of inspirational.
“Am I proud of her?” Sergei asked rhetorically. “Of course I am. She noticed that pretty quickly [her height] gave her a huge advantage in a sport she turned professional almost immediately.”
