Khagendra Thapa Magar, Nepal teen, finally old enough to vie for 'world's shortest man' title
He's now 18-years-old, and wants to be recognized as the world's shortest man.
The Nepalese teen, Khagendra Thapa Magar, who stands at 22-inches, is finally old enough to have his name submitted to the Guiness World Records officials - and the application's already on its way.
Magar's family attempted to submit his name four years ago, but was told he was too young and may still grow. Now that he's an 'adult,' they're hoping to prove he's smallest guy in town.
It could be some time before Magar, who weighs about 10 pounds, can officially obtain the title as the world's smallest person. Guiness officials will still need to verify his height and he has stopped growing.
21-year-old He Pingping of China currently holds the shortest man title, standing just 29-inches tall.
