World's tallest teenager reaches record-breaking 7ft 8ins - and he's still growing
The world's tallest teenager has reached a record-breaking height of 7ft 8ins - and he's still continuing to grow.
Broc Brown, who was officially the world's tallest teenager before becoming too old for the 18-and-below classification, is growing at the rate of six inches a year.
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.
He 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 condition effects one in every 15,000 people but doctors are now confidentthat Broc will have a normal life span despite his health problems .
