Re: News 17-05-2012 - Sultan Kosen

If Tuncel is 7’ 1” with shoes, Kosen with shoes is 8’ 2.4” in September 2009.
If Tuncel is 7’ with shoes, Kosen is 8’ 1.2” with shoes (nearly current standing height with shoes)
If Kosen is with shoes 8’ 0.3” Tuncel is 6’ 11.2” with shoes.

the problem with that image is that it is moved and the head of Kosen is not defined very well. Tuncel is measured from the floor to the top of his cap. I really do not think it is over 7'. TTM said Kosen was 7 '11 "barefoot in February 2009 and reached the 8' 1" projecting height. But in this photo 9 months after obtaining the title of GWR, it was the same height it is today in 2012, with shoes -with sole not as thick as those made by Mr. Wessels- :?: if Tuncel is 7'.
Seems that Sultan grew about 1 inch and a half since his was operated the tumor in 2008. He went from standing to ~ 7 '11 "to stand for ~ 8' 0.5" barefoot.
