What is the world record for biggest hands?

The world record for the largest hands belongs to Sultan Kösen, a Turkish man born in 1982. Kösen has a rare medical condition known as macromelia, which caused his hands to grow to an incredible size.

Kösen’s right hand measures an astonishing 11.2 inches (28.5 cm) from the wrist to the tip of the middle finger, while his left hand measures 10.8 inches (27.5 cm). He also has the largest feet in the world, measuring an impressive 14.5 inches (36.8 cm) long.

Kösen’s condition is believed to be caused by a tumor on his pituitary gland, which is located in the brain and controls the production of growth hormone. However, doctors have been unable to confirm this.

Kösen is currently the tallest living man in the world, standing at 8 feet, 3 inches (2.51 meters). He is also the second tallest man in recorded history, after Robert Wadlow, who was 8 feet, 11.1 inches (2.72 meters) tall.

Kösen’s hands have caused him significant hardship due to their size, as it is difficult for him to find clothes, shoes, and other items that fit him properly. He has also had to learn how to use his hands differently, as most everyday tasks are no longer easy for him to carry out.

Despite these difficulties, Kösen has become something of a celebrity since his record-breaking hands were discovered. He is often invited to appear in documentaries and talk shows, and he has also traveled around the world to meet people and share his story.

Kösen’s record-breaking hands are an incredible testament to the power of the human body, and a reminder of how much people can achieve despite physical adversity.
