Tallest Man in Iran 244-250cm ????

Discussions about extremely tall people

Re: Tallest Man in Iran 244-250cm ????

Former forum member reza (some of you might remember him) has visited Morteza Mehrzad at his home and he has sent me the images to prove this. The new full size images are to be viewed on Morteza Mehrzad's page. Here are the thumbnails, with reza dressed in blue shirt.

We went to Morteza Mehrzad's house 2 days ago. To my surprise I measured his height with exact accuracy at 244 cm (8 feet 0 inches) tall. So he is taller than Zhang Jun Cai.

As you can see in the pictures, one of his legs is 15 cm shorter than the other (like Ijaz Ahmed). That is also the reason why he only looks 7 feet 7 inches in the pictures.

I measured the length of his had at exactly 27 cm long. Only 0.5 cm shorter than Sultan Kosen's handlength.


What do you think people? Do we have a possible 8-footer here?

well if he was measured as being eight feet....well done reza! :applaud: I think I'd like one step further though, and have an official measurement done by a medic, but hey, Mehrzad immediately goes on my 99% likely list! (we could also compare the pics of reza with that smuggler giant?)

Reza was a gadfly on this forum but he didn't always get the credit he deserved for calling things as they are.

Extraordinary claims, however, require extraordinary proof. Reza if he really is 8' tall, show us video or pictures of the measurement taking place. Let us see the entire length of the tape measurer with the numbers clearly displayed where the top of his head is. Surely he wouldn't mind this if it proves he is one of the tallest people to ever live. :cheeseygrin:

I did appreciate reza's critical thinking even when I disagreed with him. :applaud:

The picture with reza and the tape measure, the giant does look a little like he's standing on tiptoe, he's way taller in that pic. Hard to see his foot properly.

The video clearly shows (TV interview) his leg is longer, so I suppose if he's balancing only on the long leg while reza measures him ...hard to say. Need proper verification, really. But it's a great possibility!

reza: please go & measure the Siah Khan skeleton! please! :applaud:
edit: the video vs the pictures I find confusing, so edited my post.

And I would point out that in the picture of the giant standing in between Reza and the fellow in the red shirt, if Reza is 6'3" in that photo as he claimed, the giant is 8'1". And he isn't standing up straight. So in the photo where he is clearly standing several inches taller where Reza is measuring him, he would be well over 8' tall, not 8' even as is claimed.

Here's the chart, measure for yourselves.

yeah, reza claimed to be quite tall didn't he? on top of this, the pic with reza and the tape measure, the giant's back seems oddly shaped, bit like Zhang. Maybe this is why the 8'2 claim has been put forward, because his back isn't straight either.

He might be taller than 7'7" with perfect posture, maybe, maybe not. But I'll not believe he is 8' tall until Reza provides clear proof.
