Meet The Tallest Young Person On The Planet, Still Growing At 7ft 4in


The tall young person is known as“Tiny”  by his friends. Because of his stature, he has quite recently satisfied his sporting dream by being picked for the Welsh national basketball team.


Brandon Marshall is only 16 years of age yet as of now remains at seven feet and four inches and he is being considered as the tallest youngster on the planet. 

The giant kid turned into the tallest teen in the world after former record holder Broc Brown, who is 7ft 8ins, turned 20. Brandon has grown an additional five crawls in the most recent year and specialists say he has not achieved his last stature. 

His mum Lynne Quelch, 49, stated: 

“I can’t believe he’s still growing. To be honest I don’t know what height he is going to reach. He does tend to struggle with roofs, ceilings, doorways – just everything normal size people take for granted. He has got a super king bed at the moment but we are having an eight foot bed custom built for him.

“It is crazy, walking down the road with Brandon. People stop him, asking for photos with him. He is so shy as well, bless him. When people notice his height, he says ‘oh here we go again, yes I am tall, yes I am Britain’s tallest teenager’.”

Brandon, of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, first hit headlines last year when he measured 6ft 11inches. But since then he has carried on growing and is showing no signs of stopping. Doctors have completed a heap of tests on the youngster, yet at the same time don't know why he is developing so tall. Previous scans indicated he is missing chromosome 12, known as the stature cropper chromosome. 

Brandon, who has estimate 17 feet, stated: 

“I was normal size up until the age of nine. I then had a big growth spurt. I was about 6ft when I was about 13 and I started to grow a lot more by then. When I was in year nine I got to 6ft 7inchs and in year 10 I got to 7ft. Shoes have always been a problem because I will never be able to find them and they are really expensive.”

Brandon has a family dominated by tall individuals. His mum is 5ft 11inchs and his dad is 6ft 10inchs. His 30-year-old sibling, Zak is 6ft 4ins tall while his 25-year-old sister Zoe measures 5ft 6ins.
