World’s Tiniest Teenager Wins Guinness World Record

Jyoti Amge of India has been recognized by Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s shortest woman. Jyoti was known as the world’s shortest teenager until she turned 18 this year. Guinness said in a statement Jyoti has grown less than one centimetre (0.4 inch) in the last two years and will not grow any taller due to a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia.
The teenager stands at 24.7 inches tall – 2.76 inches shorter than the 22-year-old American who had held the title since September. She weighs about 10 lbs.
