Bao Xi Shun (China, b. 1951) is the tallest living man. His height, 2.36 m (7 ft 8.95 in), was confirmed at Chifeng City Hospital, Inner Mongolia, China, on 15 January 2005.

Guinness World Records had returned the title of world’s tallest man back to him after Ukrainian Leonid Stadnyk took over the title briefly. After Stadnyk refused to be measured under new guidelines, which required him to be independently measured by Guinness World Records’s adjudicators, the title was returned to Xi Shun.
