The world’s tallest teenager has reached new record-breaking height at just the tender age of 19 as he goes for the world record.
Broc Brown who is officially the world’s tallest teenager has reached a record-breaking height of 7ft 8ins and is still growing.
He is growing at the rate of six inches a year; it has been predicted that if he maintains that rate, the 19-year-old from Michigan could easily surpass the current world’s tallest man, Sultan Kosen, who stands at 8ft 2ins.
His mother, Darci said: ‘I’d say Broc was around 5ft 2ins when he was in kindergarten.
‘When he got into middle school he was around 6ft tall and by high school he was 7ft tall – he could easily grow six inches in a year.
‘It’s a genetic disorder and there’s nothing that can stop him from growing – I don’t know if he will ever stop.’
It was revealed that the teenager was diagnosed with Sotos Syndrome, known as cerebral gigantism, when he was just five-years-old and his mother was told that he would not outlive his teenage years. The teenage has gone on to make history.
