World's shortest man is from the Philippines

June 12, 2011 2:35am CST
The guiness book of world record has released a new record on the shortest man in the world and he is Junrey Balawing, an 18 year old man from Sindangan. Junrey stands 60 centimeters or less than 2 feet only. Well, another record to break.

Yes, i saw him on TV. I pity him, because his mind is still of a small child. Though, the next day that Guiness announced him to be the shortest man , another shorter man was also shown on TV. He was in the same place, much shorter and the man is 10 years old.

Hi dorisday1971, less than 2 feet! Oh gosh, he is really the shortest man whom I haven't seen before. Thanks for the latest info sharing. I hope I would have chance to see Junrey Balaawing once in my life. The shortest man I have seen in person here is a about 3.8 ft tall teenage. It's sad that the kids around always play jokes on him.

I saw it in the news. Despite his deficiency, I'm so happy for him. He's only 23 inches tall and it created so much goodness into his life. The recognition was superb!

Yikes, that's tiny. Is he fully developed as a man? As in he grows facial hair and the like.
