The latest entrant in the "world's shortest" category is Indian Jyoti Amge.
Ms Amge measures 62.8cm (or 24.7 inches) and has a condition called achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism.
Like many of the title holders she is proud with the award.
"I feel grateful to be this size, after all if I weren't small and had not achieved these world records I might never have been able to visit Japan and Europe, and many other wonderful countries," she said.
