Svetlana Pankratova born August 29, 1971 in Volgograd, Russian SFSR, USSR) has, according to Guinness World Records, the longest legs of any woman in the world.
While she is not the world's tallest woman, her legs are 132 centimetres (4 ft 4 in) long. Because her upper body is of much more typical dimensions, she is 196 centimetres (6 ft 5 in) tall. She has also very large feet, size 13 (US) / 46 (EU).
Pankratova played women's basketball at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, USA, from 1992 to 1995. She was an impact player, setting three school records which are still unbroken:
No. 1 - Career Blocked Shots, 1992–95 (176)
No. 1 - Single Season Total Blocked Shots, 1994–95 (75)
No. 8 - Single Season Field Goals, 1994–95 (178)
Pankratova appeared in Trafalgar Square in London on September 16, 2008 with He Pingping, the smallest man in the world, to promote the 2009 edition of the Guinness World Records.
