When the height is gunning at 7 feet and you add other near-perfect body features to the equation, Ekaterina Lisina is the possible result. The towering beauty is currently a Russian model and has also paid her dues as a basketball player, putting to good use her record-breaking body features.
Ekaterina Lisina constantly drops jaws whenever she is out mingling with people and below are the reasons why this is so.
Ekaterina Lisina Early Life
Born on October 15th, 1987, in the city of Penza, Russia, the model was named Yekaterina Viktorovna Lisina by her parents. She has not shared information about her childhood and educational achievements but she started out as a basketball player and during this period in her professional life, she played for the Russian National Team at the 2008 Summer Olympics, where she walked away with the bronze medal.
Before she went to the Olympics, Ekaterina pitched her tent with other teams including Mizo Pecs (Hungary-A, 2004-06), Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje (Russia-Premier League, 2006-07), as well as CSKA Moscow (Russia-Premier League, 2007-09). In the latter days of her career, she played with Good Angels Kosice (Slovak Republic-Extraliga, 2009), Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje (Russia-Premier League, 2009-10), and finally said farewell to the game after playing for the Dynamo Kursk (Russia-Premier League, 2011-14).
Apparently, retirement didn’t mean she is tired as she has gone on to earn a decent living coupled with more fame as a model. While information about the modeling agencies and brands she has worked with is not readily available, Ekaterina Lisina has garnered even more attention and recognition in her modeling career than she did on the basketball court.
The stunning Russian model and former basketball player have received some of the coveted accolades in the world from the Guinness World Record. She holds not one but two of those groundbreaking records. First, she is on the Guinness Book of World Records as the woman with the longest legs, followed by the second feat which sets her apart as the tallest professional model in the whole world.
Her Husband and Family
Not that it sounds surprising but every member of Ekaterina’s family stands above six feet. Her mother Galina Lisina is 6 ft 1 in tall, her father Viktor Lisin towers further at 6 ft 5 in while her brother is the second tallest at 6 ft 6 in, making Ekaterina Lisina the tallest of them all. Furthermore, it appears her son got the tall genes as well; at age six, the lad who was born in 2011 had already grown far taller than his mates.
Although she has a son, there is no husband in the picture. The model was in a relationship with the father of her son but things didn’t work out for the two. She is currently single, at least to the best of our knowledge.
Notably, her intimidating height has not been a problem in her relationships though she did make it clear she likes courageous and charismatic men. It sure takes a lot of courage and charisma to date someone who is yards away from you.
Height and Weight
Ekaterina Lisina stands at a drool-worthy 2.06 m (6 ft 9 in) in height, just a stone’s throw from 7 feet. She also weighs a perfect 90 kg that carries her height gracefully. The professional measurements for her award-winning legs are 132.8 cm and 132.2 cm for the left and right legs respectively. These legs were put to good use during her basketball playing days and now she flaunts them in her career as a model.
Her general body statistics are not known but be assured that the Russian beauty is well endowed with curves in all the right places.
