ANDRE THE GIANT

was a wrestling legend with legions of fans

all over the world. He stood a staggering 7ft 4in tall, and weighed

over 500 lbs. He used his size and skills to fight three or four oppo-

nents at once and to defeat some WWE heavy hitters including big

name stars like Hulk Hogan and King Kong Bundy. He was also well

known for his role as Fezzik, the good-hearted giant, in the iconic

film “The Princess Bride”, which earned him plenty of new fans.

Andre the Giant suffered from a condition in which his body had an

excess of human growth hormone and this is the reason for his

enhanced proportions and deep voice. Sadly, he passed away from

heart failure in 1993 when he was only 46 years old.

KONISHIKI YASOKICHI – 633 LB

Soccer players are not usually known for their height, but for their

ability to run fast, react quickly and exert perfect control over their

feet. It is almost unheard of for a professional soccer player to be

over 6 feet. That makes our next athlete even more extraordinary.

Yasokichi was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and he was the first non-

Japanese-born wrestler to win three division championships and

reach the second highest rank in sumo, Ozeki. Sadly, Konishiki

“Meat Bomb” Yasokichi got close but never earned the highest rank

in Sumo, the Yokozuna, meaning grand champion. These days he

has a music career and raps in English and Japanese.

Suleiman Ali Nashnush towers above the competition and is clearly

the tallest athlete ever to play a sport. Although his height peaked at

8ft, he was “only” 7ft 10in during his basketball career. After he

retired, he continued to grow and became one of only 17 people in

recorded history to reach 8 feet.

Nashnush was also an actor, he had a small part in the Fellini film

Satyricon. Nashnush’s great height was part of an abnormal growth

disorder and was corrected by a successful operation.

The “Shaq” is considered to be one of the greatest players in the

history of American basketball and played professionally for an

amazing 19 consecutive seasons. These days he uses his big per-

sonality as a sports analyst on TV.
