Many believe a race of giants walked our world sometime in the distant past, and to look at the people on this list, does look like a possibility.
Here’s a look at some real-life giants, people exceptionally tall or firm, and how they cope with being huge.
10 Sultan Kosen
Turkish man Sultan Chosen holds the Guinness World record for being the tallest person globally, with 8 feet and 2.8 inches.
As is the case with all real-life giants, Sultan’s extraordinary growth was caused by a tumor on his pituitary gland.
Although he has trouble walking and needs to use crutches, Sultan has traveled the world and appeared on many shows.
He also holds the record for the world’s biggest hands, almost 11 inches, and his shoe size is 22. Don’t look for it at the store; nobody sells this kind of shoes.
9 Sajjad Gharibi
Sajjad is known as the Iranian Hulk or the Persian Hercules because of his exceptional muscle mass. This real-life Hulk stands at 6ft 2in tall but weighs an impressive 340 lbs, and no, it’s not fat; it’s mostly muscle.
He’s a professional weightlifter and bodybuilder, and he’s appeared many times on the MMA circuit.
To maintain his impressive physique, Sajjad eats 4-5 times a day, and we’re not talking about snacks here; it’s full three-course meals with plenty of second helpings. But he tries to eat healthy at least.
8 Dalip Singh Rana
Also known as The Great Khali, Dalip Singh Rana is a professional wrestler with an incredible body. Born in India, he is 7 ft 1 in tall and weighs 350 lbs, which explains his feats in the ring.
Rana was cast in several movies with such a physique, both in Hollywood and in its Indian version, Bollywood.
He does weight training two hours a day and lives a very healthy life. Since he is a very religious man, he doesn’t drink or smoke.
7 Dharmendra Pratap Singh
Standing at 8 feet and 1 inch, Dharmendra Pratap Singh is the tallest man in India. Being a local celebrity doesn’t help him much as everyday life can be very complicated when you’re that tall.
Just imagine getting into a car. And nobody’s willing to hire him, incredibly as his impressive height is quite taxing on his spine, and he walks with difficulty.
Singh’s only means of making a living appears at freak shows, which are pretty popular in the country.
