World's shortest man and shortest woman meet - video

By
The world's shortest woman and world's shortest man have met to launch the 57th edition of Guinness World Records 2013.

World's shortest man Chandra Bahadur Dangi, 54.6cm, and Jyoti Amge, 62.8cm, met earlier this year with official Guinness World Records adjudicator Marco Frigatti.


It marked the first ever time the shortest man and woman in the world have met. Both wore traditional clothes from their native countries.

"It was an extraordinary moment; they're both such incredible individuals," said Frigatti. "Everyone knew this was a special moment, the atmosphere was magical."

"Since being recognised by Guinness World Records I have been able to visit lots of different countries," said Amge, 18, from Nagpur, India.

"I love travelling. I have visited Japan and parts of Europe and now I can't wait to visit the UK."

Amge will visit the UK on September 13 to mark the launch of the 2013 record book.
