Who is the world's shortest man?

Filipino Junrey Balawing, was declared by the Guinness World Records on June 12, 2011 as the World's smallest man. The 18-year-old resident of Zamboanga del Norte measures only 24 inches from head to foot lying down and just over 23 inches standing up.

According to the Guinness World Records, Balawing is not only the shortest living man, but also the shortest living man in history. The diminutive Balawing took the title from Nepalese Khagendra Thapa Magar who stands at 26.4 inches.

Junrey didn't get any monetary prize from Guinness World Records, but he will be feted by a grand celebration with balloons and a cake courtesy of his town's officials.
