I placed the ruler and platform directly behind the model of Sultan in order to measure him.
After Compensating for the height of the platform on which the ruler is placed, the height of Sultan turns out to be approx 248,6 cm or 8'1 7/78" in this picture. This is of course based on the thought that the ruler in the picture is correct. Feel free to post your thoughts on this work.
I think that is about spot on!
When Sultan was first measured by Guinness World Records in 2009 at 8'1" his standing height was about 7'11". He was still growing at the time and now at 8'3" tall his standing height would be about 8'1" or maybe slightly above after some surgery on his knees. Not sure if this made a difference on his posture.
