UK: A Nepalese man has set the record for the world’s shortest living male teenager at a height of 73.43cm (2ft 4.9in).

Dor Bahadur Khapangi, 18, was given a Guinness World Records certificate in Kathmandu on Monday, according to local media reports.

Pictures show him posing alongside his brother Nara Bahadur Khapangi, who carried him to the award ceremony, and CEO of Nepal Tourism Board, Dhananjay Regmi.

He was also seen walking with his young niece Om Kumari Pulami Magar ahead of the event, which was held by the country’s national tourism organization. Photographers and reporters were later spotted crowding around to take a snap of him posing atop a ledge.

Dor’s Guinness World Records certificate reads: “The shortest teenager living (male) is Dor Bahadur Khapangi (Nepal, b. 14 November 2004) who measured an average of 73.43cm (2ft 4.9in) in Kathmandu, Nepal on 23 March 2022.”

Previously, Jyoti Amge from India was named the world’s shortest living teenager at 61.95cm (2ft) in 2009.

She has since been confirmed as the world’s shortest living female, measuring 62.8cm (2ft 0.72in) on her 18th birthday in 2011, and has retained the record for over a decade.

Jyoti once met with Khagendra Thapa Magar, from Nepal, who was named the world’s shortest male teenager in 2010. – YAHOO NEWS
