Svetlana Pankratova, a former Russian women's basketball player, has the longest legs ever recorded in human history. Her legs are an astonishing four feet, four inches long (132cm).
She is also six feet, five inches tall overall, and has received celebrity-like status for her unique record.
According to reports, Pankratova married a Falls Church resident, Jack Gosnell. She was then offered a position as assistant coach at George Mason High School, which is one of the state's top girls basketball teams. Although the team was recently eliminated at the semi final stages of the state playoffs.
Pankratova was apparently oblivious that she had world record legs, and it was only when a friend suggested to her that she get them checked out as they could be the longest legs of all time, that she finally investigated.
Guinness World Records have officially confirmed her legs are the longest they have ever seen or recorded, making the Falls Church George Mason High School's assistant coach a world record holder.
