October 7, 2020: A 17-year-old teenager from Texas, USA, has broken two world records thanks to her long legs. Maci Currin was certified by Guinness World Records as having the world's longest legs (female) and the longest legs on a teenager. 



According to the official website of the Guinness World Records, her left leg is 135.267 cm (53.255 in) long, while her right leg is 134.3 cm (52.874 in).



Reportedly, the teenager has now knocked Russia's Ekaterina Lisina off the top spot for the Guinness World Record for longest female legs. In 2017, Lisina had broken the Guinness record for being the tallest female professional model with a height of 6 ft 8.77 in, with her legs measuring an unparalleled 132 cm in length. Her left and right leg measured 132.8 cm and 132.2 cm, respectively.





Though Currin is from a family that is relatively tall, neither her parents nor siblings are as tall as the teenager who is 6 ft 10 inches tall. Her legs make up 60 per cent of her total height, the records’ website said.



The teenager says that she first realised her legs were longer than average in 2018 while looking for a pair of leggings. She was unable to find anything that fitted her and then someone asked her if she wanted a custom pair of leggings.



After that, she applied for the official Guinness World Records title for the world's longest legs (female).



Currin said she wanted to inspire tall people around the world to accept and embrace their height.
