Who's the tallest girl / boy you've ever seen?

During my school days, there was a girl which pratically towers over every other students, and for 3 years (until she lef the school), her height was never challenged - not even by the boys. This is because she kept growing in these five years from 5ft 9 1/2 to 6ft 2. That's incredible, because her parents were under 5ft 8! Since then, I've never seen a girl as tall as her.

Anyone have similiar experiences? (P.S: Girl / boy - under 18)

Your sig picture exceeds the 200 pixel height limit.

Australian Open 2010 Final Result:-
Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

I saw a man who is obviously over 7 feet tall at train station one, the 'worse' is his girlfriend is about the same height as me 5'8.

Martina Hingis

I once was acquainted with a couple in which the guy was 6'10" and the girl was 5'0". But they were not under 18, so it doesn't really count for the thread.

A guy at my school was 6ft 8 the last time I seen him and he was only about 15 then so he's probably taller now.

The tallest female I've seen in person was Lisa Leslie, famous women's basketball player. I think she might be 6'7" ...
