Guiness World Record Measurement

Chandra Bahadur Dangi (L), a 72-year-old Nepali who claims to be the world's shortest man at 56 centimetres (22 inches) in height, stands on a measuring device as medical doctor Rashila Pradhan (C) and Guinness World Records adjudicator Craig Glenday (R) look on at a hospital at Kathmandu on February 26, 2012. Dangi left his home in an isolated village in southwestern Nepal to fly to the capital, Kathmandu, to be measured by Guinness World Records officials.
