Bodies that put the 'extra' in extraordinary

RECORD BREAKER: Mikel Ruffinelli

WE CANNOT help but be amazed at the sheer diversity of the human body and the oddities it throws up. Here are five remarkable individuals who are world-beaters when it comes to bigger, longer, heavier and wider.

MIKEL RUFFINELLI
(Widest hips)

This woman’s hips are in a league of their own – the 420 lbs Ruffinelli has hips that are 100 inches wide! The mother of four, who stands at 5ft 4in and has a 40-inch waist, said: “I see no reason to diet because I don’t have health problems. Men don’t fancy skinny girls, they like an hourglass figure.”

FRANCISCO DOMINGO JOAQUIM
(widest mouth)

Angolan Francisco Domingo Joaquim is the happy owner of the world’s widest mouth. Measuring 17cm (6.69 inches) wide, Joaquim’s mouth can hold an entire soft drink can, and is able to conceal many other objects. He must have the world’s biggest smile too.

EMANUEL 'MANNY' YARBOROUGH
(heaviest athlete)

Born in New Jersey, United States, Emanuel Yarborough - who at his heaviest weighed just under 400 kg - is the world’s heaviest athlete. The American, a sumo wrestler and mixed martial arts fighter, is 6ft 8in tall and has adopted the nickname ‘The Giant Killer’ – ironic as there is no one else bigger than him to slay.

NORMA STITZ
(biggest natural breasts)

Her stage name may crack a smile, but Stitz, whose real name is Annie Hawkins-Turner, must have back problems being the proud owner of the biggest natural breasts in the world. Together, they weigh a back-breaking 83 lbs! Stitz, who has starred in over 250 soft porn films, said: “I’ve never considered having breast reduction. I’ve never thought of bringing a knife to myself. Why fix something that’s not broken?”

CHANEL TAPPER
(longest tongue)

Californian student Chanel Tapper has a tongue which at 9.75cm (3.8 inches) long is double the length of the average Joe’s. Such measurements give her the honour of having the world’s longest tongue. On the topic of what men think of it, she said: “Most guys that know or already see it automatically have their mind in the gutter… I don’t have a boyfriend, but the last guy I dated didn’t make it that big of a deal, and I really liked him for that.”
