Shortest living man in history a Filipino?


MANILA, Philippines - Is the shortest living man in history living in the Philippines?

This is what the whole world will know on June 12 when Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday flies to the country to measure the height of Junrey Balawing in his hometown in Zamboanga del Norte.

On June 12, Balawing will turn 18, making him eligible for the title.

Glenday will measure Balawing's height at the Sindangan Health Center in Zamboanga del Norte at 10 a.m. that day.

Following the official measurement is a press conference. Both Glenday and Balawing will be available for interviews, said Guinness World Records in a statement.

Balawing, now 17, reportedly currently stands tall at 22 inches.

The title of "Shortest Living Man" is presently held by Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal, who stands at 26.4 inches.

Should Balawing's height prove shorter than Magar's, he will not only be the shortest living man on earth. He will also hold the title of "Shortest Living Man in History".
