A woman famed for having the world’s longest legs has landed a job as a high school basketball coach.  Svetlana Pankratova, 41, whose limbs measure 4ft 4in, is working as an assistant coach for the girls’ team at George Mason High School in Falls Church,
Virginia.  She was born in Russia and her height is 6ft 5 inches. images-18 Pankratova played college basketball for a year in Russia before being recruited by Virginia Commonwealth University.  Love came to Pankratova in the form of Jack Gosnell, who was working in St. Petersburg as the u.S General Counsel.  Now, she and her husband live in Virginia.

The longest fingernails belonged to Lee Redmond (USA), who started to grow them in 1979 and carefully manicured images-1them to reach a total length of 8.65 m (28 ft 4.5 in) as measured on the set of Lo show dei record in Madrid, Spain, on 23 February 2008. Lee lost her nails in an automobile accident in early 2009.  It is hard to imagine how Lee could do every day tasks like washing herself, preparing meals, putting on clothes.  And, I wonder what would the bill be for a manicure?

There is a twelve year old who ranks as the teenager with the world’s longest hair.   Natasha Moraes de Andrade lives in poverty in Brazil and she hopes to sell the hair for about $3,500 so that she can renovate the family home.  The length of the hair is 5ft 2″ and is longer than she is tall.   The length of her hair has its drawbacks: an hour to brush it, no fans are activated at home in case her hair gets caught in one, and she can’t play sports.Natasha-Moraes-de-Andrade-7
