14-year-old Chinese boy over 7 feet tall set to become tallest male teenager

Towering well over seven feet tall, Chinese teenager 14-year-old Ren Keyu stands out from the rest of his classmates. 

The schoolboy from Leshan City, in the southwestern Chinese province of Sichuan, is at least two feet taller than other lads and is now set to be confirmed as the world’s largest male teenager. He is so tall he can easily reach the street lamps in his town.

On his 14th birthday Ren measured seven foot three — with at least another four years of growth to come. 

The boy has applied to be the world’s current tallest male teenager with Guinness World Records — a title previously held by an American teen who was seven foot one when he was 16.

The teenager is so large he even needed to have special furniture made, including a desk and chair that he could fit in so he could study.

His grandmother Wu Mei told Red Star News he had grown a lot taller in the past two years.

“Since I have entered school, I have noticed that I am taller than the other kids at my age. Many students were mistaking me as a fellow from the senior generation. That did disturb me but I decided to make it something positive by applying to Guinness to see if I could get the world record,” Ken remarked.
