Lin Yih-Chih

Lin Yü-chih (Mark Dolan.


Lin suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, a genetic bone disorder that hinders normal growth of bone and bodily height. According to the Guinness Book of World Records he is 67.5 cm (2 ft 2.58 in) tall.[1][2] He is the founder of the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Association.[3]

Other claimants

Others have also claimed the 'Shortest Man' title. He Pingping, from China, measured 73 cm (2 ft 4.74 in) high and in 2007 was crowned as the world's shortest man who could walk. In 2006, Guinness World Records disallowed an application from a then fourteen-year-old Nepalese boy, Khagendra Thapa Magar, who has since turned 18 and taken the title of 'World's Shortest Man'.[4]
