A Falls Church woman featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest legs in the world is back in the news this week.

The Huffington Post featured a story this week on a New York model, Brooke Banker, with really long legs: 47 inches long, from heel to hip bone.

But as long as Banker's legs are, they aren't the longest in the world. That honor goes to Svetlana Pankratova of Falls Church,  whose "pins" as the Huffington Post called them, have been measured at 51.9 inches by Guinness World Records. Pankratova is originally from Russia.

Huffington Post noted that Pankratova is 6-foot 8, nine inches taller than Banker. 

The Guinness Book of World Records certified her as a world record-holder and shot this official photo measuring the longest legs in the world.
