     It feels good to finally have proof that I am the Tallest Man in America. Everyone is always asking me if Im certain that Im the tallest and I was never able to prove it. Now that I have this certificate to hang on my wall, I could finally show it. Igor Vovkovinskiy said of the acknowledgment.

    With a size 24 10-E shoe, the he Tallest Living Man in America faces challenges daily including fitting into cars, finding comfortable shoes and squeezing into desks at the Minnesota School of Business where he is pursuing a degree in paralegal studies.

    He's found solace in organizations like the Tall Club International where he's made lasting friendships with other tall people like himself.
    It seems that the new he Tallest Living Man in America is a big supporter of President Barack Obama and has been seen in many presidential rallies in the past.

   Igor now joins the World's Tallest Living Man, Sultan Kosen (Turkey), who measures in at 8 feet 1 inch and the World's Tallest Man Ever, Robert Wadlow (US) who stood an amazing 8 feet 11.1 inches tall in the Guinness World Records.
