These Huge Athletes and Celebrities are the Biggest in the World!

Some athletes work tirelessly with the help of a custom diet, mental preparedness, and endless practice led by a personal trainer to achieve greatness.  But there are others who we can consider are just natural born athletes. There is no need to take vitamins to grow tall or strong, and there’s no need for special protein drinks or diets to bulk up. These natural born athletes reach staggering heights and some even weight a lot, and it’s not something that we see very often. But unfortunately some of them, like the famous Andre the Giant, grew very tall and big because of an illness that cut his life short. Nevertheless, during the years he excelled in wrestling, he entertained many, thus living a full but short life. Read on to see who else is on this unique list of the world’s biggest athletes and celebrities.

 Hong-Man Choi – Height: 7’2″

It seems that even Connor McGregor would feel fear when he looks at kick boxer and mixed martial artist Hong-Man Choi standing in front of him in the ring as he would look like a giant when compared to McGregor. Choi, also referred to as the ‘Korean Colossus,’ ‘Techno Goliath,’ and ‘Korean Monster,’ stands 7 feet and 2 inches tall. His opponents would probably start shivering in fear just listening to these nicknames! You would be surprise to know that when Choi isn’t fighting, he is pursuing a career in the fields of music and acting.

Yao Ming – Height: 7’6″

When the world first found out about basketball player Yao Ming, they couldn’t believe their eyes, because of how tall he was… 7’6″ to be exact.  Others may have surpassed his record for the tallest NBA player, but we will never forget that many jaws dropped when they first laid their eyes on Yao Ming.  His career in basketball can be called successful, he led the Houston Rockets to win in the first round in 2009, and he got to the NBA playoffs a total of 4 times. Unfortunately Ming suffered from a foot injury that required some attention of medical doctors, and he needed physical therapy for it. After being on the sidelines for 250 games because of his injury, Ming decided to retire.

John Krahn – Height: 7ft

We imagine people who have gotten in the way of  NFL player John Krahn, and they sure would have needed a massage or some serious therapy after their game. Because the high school footballer player is 7 ft tall and weighs 400 lbs, an injury to his opponents is no joke at all.  Krahn is only 17 years old and there is no telling how successful he would become in the future, especially in the NFL. As of now, his coach is trying to help him lose weight to achieve his ideal 360 lbs.
