Look like Richters could be 215-216cm if he stand straight with 6'3 Lou Ferrigno. Richters not those typically giant who had 12" head more like a regular 10.5-10.75" head. 6'7 1/2 Hafthor doesn't look to make him near 7'1 3/4 more like struggle 7'1.

This is Semmy Schilt w/ Richters... Click Here Semmy looks to be almost the same height as Stefan Struve next to Richters. Semmy is listed as 6'10", 6'11", and 6'11.5"... whereas Struve is down as 7 feet tall.

Maybe Semmy is around 6'8.5" and Struve is 6'9". Richters is max 7'0'. He's not taller than Joel Embiid IMO.

Stefan is more 6'11.5" its not like he wouldn't measure clear over 7' in the morning. I love Olivier such a great, friendly guy although his eating regime is crazy to maintain his mass.

The issue with the photo's of Olivier with BigShow are both camera distance and spacing. Olivier has been asked, quite a few times, why he didn't look taller than BigShow in those pictures, and he replied with (paraphrased) "Because he was closer to the camera and had his wrestling boots on at the time".

By now everyone here knows Pro-wrestlers boots add quite a bit, and getting a bodyspace closer to the camera makes a huge difference. Even things like tilting one's head back can give the perception of more height.

I asked Olivier on his old IG, before he deleted it and made a new one under the title "Dutch Giant"; if he was 218 exactly, or if it was rounded, and if he had been measured at any other time of day? He said that in the morning he has been measured at doctor office at 220cm but that he loses a couple centimeters through the day, and is about 218 most of the time. His wingspan is 220cm as well.

I could see his evening low measurement being 217.5, but at that point I really can't fault him for just rounding it to 218.

He actually is very friendly, and one of the few bodybuilders who has allowed his arms to be measured without a pump in public. It was a couple years ago in 2016, there is a YT video of it, and they measured 51cm, or 20". They look far larger than that. Even now, and he has clearly gained muscular weight, he says they are 21" (53cm). This is relevant because his arms are clearly as big or bigger than a lot of men who claim 23"+ measurements.

He even tells people what his current weight is rounder to he closest 2kg, he says 150kg at the moment is the heaviest he has ever been at his current level of definition. That's relevant because he could easily get away with exaggerating his weight by 25kg and most people wouldn't question him.

Rob, he might even actually allow you to measure him one day. Probably wise to email him first to confirm he is alright with it if you ever meet, but probably worth asking him as he might go for it. Olivier has commented before on how a lot of famous people he's met were exaggerated as a response when people in his comment section claim "___ and ___ are taller than you", so it would allow him to not only settle the debate, but that would provide you with a very good human measuring stick if you could get an accurate height on a real giant too.

@Sotiris: I wouldn’t have guessed AC Green that low. I would’ve said 6’7.5 or 6’8 but maybe you’re right

@Christian: Olivier is taller. Satnam's height is his listed height. Not verified. I am guessing he is 7'2" with shoes.

@Erik Click Here I'm wondering Rob listed him corretly. Just that 7'4 Rob Zwaan could have grow taller like 7'5. Maybe..
Michael Christman said on 25/Feb/19
Wow, I never heard of this guy before, I was looking through the most recent celebrities and I found this monstrously built dude. He looks much taller than Hafthor here in that picture, so I think that guy is definitely around 7’2”. Just a guy with massive proportions overall, looks every bit of 7’2” to me.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Feb/19
@Zahid
But Olivier looks taller than him.
Myself said on 20/Feb/19
@Erik
Because you can see that shoulder level Gap is quite noticeable, aswell as the fact that Rob's eyes are close to the top of Oliver's head, even though he is raising eyelevel. I'm not sure but Oliver's forehead could be easily over 5 inches, so...

Well under 6'7 for Shaw means what exactly? He looks 6'7. Shaw, Strowman and Thor are probably all close enough barefoot.

Erik C. said on 19/Feb/19
@Junior

True, his hair could be a factor. But honestly I don't really think it would give him that much.

@Myself

Perhaps minimum four and maybe we could discount footwear bc they're probably similar. But I think that Zwaan tilting his head makes Olivier seem 7'1 max when in reality I think it's more like max 7'2.

But I don't rule it out.
Myself said on 18/Feb/19
@Erik
Yes I meant 3 inches minimum, more like closer to 4.
It's unlikely that he's more than 7'4 since he claims it and there's no point in talking about shoes if we assume footwear is similar.
So 7'4-3.5" (let's say) and he's 7'0.5. Even if it was only 3 inches and Rob is really just 7'4, then Oliver is still 7'1 max, so IDK.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Feb/19
@Erik C Hafthor was not standing better than Olivier compare his legs. Rob Zwaan was being measured and certified at 7'4. Click Here: here. Olivier was never have prove being measure without a hair and shoes off at 7'2. Rob Zwaan look to be over 2" taller maybe not over 3" but look closely on top of their head comparison it's easily between 7cm tops. Click Here Don't fooled by Olivier hair. 2.75" apart min.
Erik C. said on 18/Feb/19
@Myself

I agree. I have looked at the picture a few more times and I do think that it's more than 2 inches. But i definitely wouldn't say it's wayy more than that. And I know you said "minimum 3-4 inches" but if it was infact minimum that I wouldn't say 1-2 inches more than 2 inches is wayy more than 2 inches. I think that it's plausible that tilting your head upward can give you approx 1-2 inches. So let's say he's 7'4 barefoot. Add 2 inches and Zwaan is 7'6. Than add av. shoes with an inch sole and you have a guy who's 7'7. So even if he was 4 inches taller he'd still be at least 7'3 in shoes and if it were a 5 inch difference than he'd still be at least 7'2+ in shoes which would put him right around 7'1-7'2" range flat. But I still stand by my position/argument that Olivier is a solid 218cm (7'2ft).
Danimal 5'9 3/4" said on 18/Feb/19
People don't realize that if this guy actually stood straight, the top of his head would be higher than the top border. Look at how many inches the top of Thor's head is from the top border. Imo, he's MAX 6'7.5" (and that's being generous), which is even more proof that Brian Shaw is WELL UNDER 6'7" barefoot (and not the 6'8" he claims to be).
Myself said on 17/Feb/19
@Erik
That is way more than 2 inches, 3-4 range minimum imo

@miko

lol on that , very possible

Closer to 7 foot given he didn't look that much taller than Big Show
Erik C. said on 16/Feb/19
@Junior

Actually I really don't think that spreading your legs in a shoulder-width apart position really causes any loss in height. Olivier isn't even standing up straight at his fullest.
Click Here

Even with supposedly 7'4" Rob Zwaan tilting his head up and Olivier standing with poor posture, the difference in height to me only looks about 2 inches. So i think that it's safe to say that Olivier is a solid 2.18m (7.2ft).

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Feb/19
Look at Hafthor right leg standing wide apart. Olivier is lucky if he reach 7'1 1/2 at night. 7'2 claim not surprise measure before afternoon.

Oliver has a noticeable lean in the pic and could be standing straighter.

Rob, why not give him 7ft2?
Editor Rob
Well I think he speaks in cm, so if measure 218 then a bit shy of 7ft 2 I give him.

Hafthor Bjornsson is listed at 6'7.75. It looks like more than a six inch gap between them. Kind of shocking to see The Mountain look small

Erik C. said on 15/Feb/19
Seems like a very solid 218 cm in my opinion. I'll give him the full 7'2. He looks like he'd rival peak Kareem Abdul Jabbar in height. I wonder who would edge out who, Kareem or this guy. I Think they could be identical. Either ways solid 7.2 feet to me.

I'm waiting for Soritis to come on here and start claiming this guy is 6'10.

I've been tying to get Rob to add Beau for the longest time. His tremendous height alone warrants a page, he's a solid 7footer. He actually measures a fraction over 7ft.
Sonnecker said on 14/Feb/19
My God.....fully 7'2" in my opinion...I saw a video talking about him and his training, incredible how he manages to use normal gym machines without framing himself within!!

Ha ha! Exactly 2ft taller than yours truly! That's quite a height!

I'm glad you finally added this giant Rob! I think he looks legit 218cm.

Rob you did well to add him. I think there is no point commenting, this guy is so tall arguing wether he is 7foot2 or 7foot1 is pointless .
Guru Guy said on 13/Feb/19
Reminds me of the 7 foot vlogger lol, could you make a page for him under youtube stars? I beleive he is 7 feet, definetely shorter than this guy though!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/19
Nice...I’m sure he’d claim 7ft1 or even 7ft. Nearer 7ft2 is more like it though
184guy2 said on 13/Feb/19
somewhere in the 7'1 range , don't think near 7'2
