I was wrong. This listing is correct. He looks it next to Larry and he was measured as well. He may wake up 7’2.5” and drop to 7’1.25”. 7’1” as an extreme low. He loses over an inch.
Duhon said on 2/Jan/21
I'd wager him start to late day going from 7'2.5" (what he was apparently just measured by Guinness Records at) to 7'1.5" like he's listed here.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Dec/20
Click Here Depending the time he get measure and busting a gut could be helping him. 7'2 1/4 out of bed would say to be fair for a giant like him.
Editor Rob
would be interesting if he had 3 measurements and average was near 218cm...

Yes, he does look about 1' taller than 6'1" Larry Wheels Click Here

Olivier looks WELL over 7'1" with Larry wheels, he barely goes up to his shoulders:

@Arch Stanton:
Sorry, I am a little dumb. I should’ve known that one.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Nov/20
To be clear Vincent I was joking sarcastically based on a (valid) comment Yao said about me going off topic! :-) I agree!
Duhon said on 22/Nov/20
A humbling experience for Oliver here no doubt Click Here
J2Frenzy said on 14/Nov/20
@Vincent he’d probably have to cut down for basketball, NBA lads are normally light and fast. He’s a similar height to Kareem, who is 100lbs lighter according to Google. He’d be great as a wrestler though, imagine him vs Big Show or Jordan Omogbehin at Wrestlemania next year
J2Frenzy said on 13/Nov/20
I mean those heights are perfectly believable to me
Canson said on 12/Nov/20
@Vincent: that range looks good to me 1.25-1.5. I haven’t studied him enough but If Rob has him listed correctly he would be 7’2.5ish to 7’3” out of bed being the 7’1.5 could be an afternoon or lunchtime
Canson said on 12/Nov/20

Vincent Caleb said on 12/Nov/20
@Canson: How much height do you think this guy loses? 1.25 or 1.5? I cannot see him losing a full 2 inches. Best case this dude can wake up at 7’2” and change, then fall to a weak 7’1”, IMO. I don’t see 7’0” flat.
J2Frenzy said on 12/Nov/20
Maybe 7’ flat is an extreme low for him. Can’t see him dipping to 6’11.75
Vincent Caleb said on 11/Nov/20
@J2Frenzy:
I agree he is 7’2” in the morning, but if he really is 340 then I would say a better chance of 7’0.5”-7’0.75” IMO. I can’t see him losing a full 2 inches, but that is just my opinion. Even Yao Ming may not be losing a full 2 inches, but at least 1.75 for Yao. My brother is just a few inches shorter than Olivier in the afternoon and loses scarcely over an inch, like an inch and 1/8.
Canson said on 11/Nov/20
lol that’s Rob’s speciality actually.

@J2Frenzy: lol
J2Frenzy said on 9/Nov/20
I think he’s 7’2 in the morning and 7’0 in the evening. Guy like him easily loses 2 inches.
Robbe said on 5/Nov/20
Nah, Richters should be 3in taller than Suotamo, in perfect angle. Now, he is only 2.5in taller when favored by the camera angle, and standing better than Suotamo. Not a rocket science, really.

But it's no use to continue, i know you won't give up, you never do. You always have to have the last words. I believe Richters is 7ft range, you believe he is at least 7'1.5. Fine by me.
Robbe said on 3/Nov/20
I still believe Richters should be downgraded. With Saitnam he is closer to the camera, and wearing thicker shoes, end yet struggles to look taller. With similar shoes, and perfect angle Saitnam would edge out Richters easily.

Richters also looks only 2.5in taller than 6'10.5 Joonas Suotamo, when he is much closer to the camera. Suotamo is also slouching in this picture cause he has difficulties to lift heavy 6'6 Wilding. Richters head is 12in there, compared to Suotamo's 9.5in head. In reality, their heads are pretty similar. Means Richters is way closer to the camera there. Yet he appears only 2.5in taller.

Click Here

Click Here

He should appear like 7'3 there compared to Suotamo, if he is really 7'2.

Richters here with 5'8 Jay Cutler.

Click Here

Now, if we compare him with Suotamo, who is standing with 5'8 guy.

I find it very hard to believe Richters is 3in taller than Suotamo, like siteowner Rob lists him currently.

I would’ve guessed 7-1 flat from pics. With Ike catcher he looked sub 7-1 though.

Yeah, Richters is around 7ft. If you look at Ike Catcher next to Olivier, compared to a 7ft guy, there is zero chance Olivier is 7'1.5.

Click Here

Olivier looks also visible shorter than 7'2 listed Omogbehin, compared to 6'9 range guys.
J2Frenzy said on 24/Oct/20
Shaq was probably inflating Yao’s height to match his own claims. Or had no idea and made a wild guess
6'3 Julian said on 13/Oct/20
Marius is neither 5’10 nor 280. He’s 6’0 and Google says 263. I didn’t say Olivier can’t bulk to 400, I said calling 340 almost 400 is ridiculous, and I’ve said I live in England and have Dutch nationality cause I was born there. You don’t seem able to read
6'3 Julian said on 11/Oct/20
@Canson he was referring to me bro. You have in the past said that I am from Europe
6'3 Julian said on 10/Oct/20
I’m not saying Olivier is too cut to be a strongman. I’m saying that he wouldn’t be a traditional looking strongman if he competed in WSM with his current physique. You are putting words in my mouth. I am also British/Dutch dual nationality and speak perfect English. Also you seem to think 340 pounds is almost 400, which is like saying 170 pounds is almost 200 and is blatantly ridiculous.

FriedChicken said on 24/Sep/20
I saw some guy unironically had him as low as 6'6 1/2 lol i wonder how he'd react meeting Oliver in person.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Sep/20
Nah he's nowhere near WSM level strength. There's aspects of it which require speed and precision, which would put him at a major disadvantage. WSM is more than just being strong, it's functional strength too, momumentum etc. The top guys in it are gifted on top of the ridiculously hard training and overreating.
Halb said on 2/Sep/20
No-one can walk into the WSM without training. Oliver may be strong, but he's not WSM strong. It's a different world. Ted Van den Parre had to train for years and back then, the lifts were lighter.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Aug/20
Yeah guys of Brian Sahw's and Haftthor's height are typically the tallest in a town , 6 ft 8 seems the cut off point I'd say. In a city working ten years I only ever saw 2 or 3 guys who looked 6-9-6'10. I saw an interview of Olivier and up close around the eyes I reckon he does look a bit like something isn't right, the result of too much growth hormone perhaps, otherwise looks very healthy. He even said about how his limbs got horribly stretched when he grew so tall and made it even tougher to gain muscle. He doesn't seem that confident in himself which is surprising given his size, and quite refreshing in a business of huge egos. Seems a genuine nice guy. He wants to become a legit actor, best of luck to him.
Duhon said on 9/Aug/20
@Roelc that comment about the appearances between "genetic giants" and "acromgalic giants" is interesting. Most of the centuries or millennia old stereotypes and stories about giants with the giant hands, and exaggerated "scary" facial features were likely based on people who had Acromegaly not naturally tall people.

Shaq is taller than Big Show and Andre was but he doesn't have that "intimidation" factor the two acrom giants do.

@Willes190

I agree 205 cm and above are extremely rare. If you don't live very crowd city, you see tallest guy could be 203-205 cm.I only saw such tall men in a basketball game. In real life, I have ever seen tallest guy that is probably 203-205 cm in a hospital. He looked extremely giant, I can't imagine 210 cm and over!
Alir?za said on 16/Jul/20
this man would be perfect for the mountain role. Hafthor is too tall and musculer but the mountain was described 2.4 meters in book
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jul/20
It's not common for a guy to be 7 inches taller than his brother for a start!
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jul/20
Yes 6 ft 6 and 5 ft 9 parents, 7 ft 2 is definitely beyond his genetic potential, you could imagine 6 ft 8 or 6 ft 9 but his mother could have had guys a similar height to his dad on her side and it's just one of those exaggerated tall gene things.
Rajiv roy said on 14/Jul/20
@ Yao 7-8, bro camera tilt can make someone taller or shorter. You know about this well. If you dont want to believe my words, then search wwe star rockstar spud with rob paul in this website.rob has listed him at 5.4 but he looks 5 foot 5 and a half. Similarly satnam might look 2.5 inch taller than khali in that photo but he is only about an inch taller than khali.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jul/20
Can’t imagine the agony this guy would face on a plane
Willes190 said on 11/Jul/20
Everyone except me seem to have encountered 7-footers... Maybe it’s because I live in a small country idk. I bet I would have encountered someone around 7ft by now if lived in the U.S/U.K.

The tallest man I’ve ever seen was probably around 203-205cm tall, that was in a hallway at a hotel. I unlike most men like the feeling of being small ones in a while, guys above 6ft 5-6ft 6 usually does the trick for me – I can’t even imagine how tiny I would feel next to a guy around 210cm or above!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jul/20
His mother is 5ft9 which is still solid tall range for a woman. That along with a 6ft6 father is destined to produce very tall children but 7ft2 is on the very tail end of extreme. However there’s a chance that he’s got older generation of family that were way up there...

From looks alone I think Ritchers would be a more convincing The Mountain than Bjornsson.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jul/20
I saw a guy around his height boarding a flight to Amsterdam once!
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jul/20
Yeah it's a height which would be a major nuisance most of the time, but I think it would be fun to be him walking around cities. He's at the height where he's easily a giant, but he's doesn't have that freakish look that guys who are nearer 7 and half feet or more have and he's certainly very fit and strong.
Willes190 said on 9/Jul/20
@Arch

“Only 6ft 6”
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jul/20
I’d love to test drive 7ft2 for a week...closest I’ve ever got was squeezing into some 7in heels which brought me to just under 7ft...could barely walk though!

I’ve seen a few seven-footers in The Netherlands
Robbe said on 8/Jul/20
@Yao, yeah, different guys, but same height. I haven't seen a single photo where Richters looks 7'2. Not even when he wears his extra thick sneakers. Here Richters with 6'4 guy, compared to 7ft Markkanen with 6'4 guy.

Click Here

Big Show is max 6'10 today, Great Khali around 6'11, Satnam and Richters both around 7ft, Omoghbehin 7'2. Those are my estimations.

Please folks, dont't call anyone idiot. That's not nice. This site is only about heights, not a big deal.
Duhon said on 7/Jul/20
@Arch Stanton he was actually born with a birth defect pectum excavatum where the chest is concave. He had surgery to correct it. Click Here I don't believe that disorder is related to height but it may impact him later in life as well.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jul/20
Yes in looking again, I would say 210 cm is the cut of point. I can imagine people being anything up to that and just huge but over 210 cm is where it starts to get freakish. certainly at the 7 ft mark.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jul/20
A 1 in a billion type of guy, actually looks very healthy and quite good for this size, but I bet as he ages he'll start to get a plethora of problems. His father incidentally is only 6 ft 6 and his brother 200 cm. Around 6 ft 7 is what you'd have expected, one of those instances where two sets of normal very tall genes going nuts. But it's more common in the Netherlands than in any other country I believe for a guy to reach 7 ft. When I look at height against a door, now to me 6 ft 10- 6 ft 11 is the range where it starts to get true giant looking, stretching up to 7 ft 2, it is virtually inconceivable to me how any human could be that big.
Robbe said on 5/Jul/20
Richters wasn't any taller than Big Show when they met. Im pretty sure he isn't over 7ft. He just does'nt look any taller than legit 7 footers, like Embiid, or Markkanen. Here all guys standing next to 190cm guys. Richters actually looks shortest of them.

Click Here

Yeah, it would be cool to see Richters in WWE. My guess is he would be dwarfed by Omogbehin :D
Rajiv roy said on 4/Jul/20
@Yao 7.8 you are a fool. I will be shocked if olivier richters is measured 7.1 at afternoon time. I think he is 7 foot half an inch afternoon. Khali probably 6.11 at afternoon at best. Omegbehin is 7 foot 2 i believe.
Robbe said on 29/Jun/20
Lol at 7'2.5 for Olivier. He is noticeable shorter than 7'3 listed Jordan Omogbehin, who is probably 7'2 range. Kevin Nash is an inch taller than Thor. This is how 6'8-6'9 range guy look next to a legit 7'2 guy.

Click Here

Kevin Nash is roughly the same height as the guy with Rihters. Do the math.

Click Here

Olivier with 6'5 Rico Verhoeven and Joonas Suotamo with 6'5 guy. Rico's posture is terrible there, yet he reaches just under Oliviers nose level. Standing straight he would reach just about the same level as the guy with Joonas.

Click Here

Really, Olivier is around 7ft. He is not much taller than Suotamo. As seen from the pics i just posted, Olivier is nowhere near Omogbehins height.
Rajiv roy said on 28/Jun/20
Bro satnam is 7.2 with shoes and also late morning height. If his shoes are 1.5 inch . Then he is 7foot half inch then minus half inch because of late morning height. That makes hi 7 foot barefoot. I am 100 percent sure that satnam singh is flat 7 foot. I saw him with virat kohli who is most popular person in india after our pm. He claims 5.9 and satnam does not look more than 15 inches taller than him . Satnam is 7 foot . Sim bhular is 7 foot 3 and a half .
Rajiv roy said on 24/Jun/20
Bro khali had a leg surgery and his legs looks so awkward these days. He is probably 6.10 these days. Satnam is 7 foot. Olivier is 7.1
Jkiller said on 24/Jun/20
Guy is 7'1.5 (217cm), no doubt about it.

Yao 7.8 bro i font know how much do know about cricket? But if you serach youtube by typing virat kohli( legit 5.9 guy) with fake 7.2 satnam singh then you will realise that satnam singh is not 7.2 barefoot. He is more likely 7 foot flat.

Brandon (Aspiring 7 footer) said on 2/Jun/20
@Canson, this is just like if Shaq wanted to claim 7'2" being only a 214-216 cm man...

Also, side note. I fully believe that 7'2" ¾ (220 cm) barefoot 7'3" ½ (222 cm) in shoes Peter Jon Ramos would have at least 2 inches on Olivier. Here with 7'5" (225 cm) Sim Bhullar

7'0.5 at best. Photos of him next to a 8 footer he looked a foot shorter, maybe need him to stand next to someone like Shaq or Yao Ming.
Robbe said on 10/Apr/20
Richters looks definitely shorter than Saitnam there. He is closer to the camera and wearing thicker shoes. Yet he looks only hair taller. I would put my money on Saitnam if they were barefoot back to back.
Robbe said on 22/Mar/20
@Chris Junior Hernandez 1990, yeah, if this pic have been above from the start, average guess wouldn't be so high.

Click Here

Richters get's an inch for "free" in that tilted pic. So the average guess is a bit false.
Robbe said on 21/Mar/20
Richters with 203cm Thor, and Suotamo with 203cm Marko Anttila Click Here
Robbe said on 20/Mar/20
Richters looks only 2in taller than 6'10.5in Joonas Suotamo in this photo, where Suotamo is further away from the camera, and his legs are more bended than Richters. Poor Suotamo looks to have difficulties to lift 6'6 Spencer Wilding lol.

Click Here

Considering Richters is heavily favored by camera angle there, my guess is he is no more than an inch taller than Suotamo. 6'11.5 seems too low for Richters, i know, but on the other hand, Suotamo claims 6'11.5, which would make Richters 7ft.05in. Maybe 7'1, if he is 1.5in taller than Suotamo. One thing which is sure, Richters is not 3in taller than Suotamo, like Rob lists them currently. No way.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Mar/20
The above IG picture he look 7'1 1/2 with 6'7 3/4 Hafthor but the picture was tilt up from Oliver side given him advantage of some height increase. 7'0 3/4 to 7'1 should be his real barefoot height and 7'2 with shoes on.
Ellis said on 18/Mar/20
7'1.25, that picture with the 6'9 guy favors the 6'9 man. If you think he is under 7', that is quite outlandish. With the 6'9 man, that looks to be a 3 inch difference, but it must be considered that it favors the 6'9 man. So, I would give Olivier a bit over 4 inches compared to that guy. 7'1.25 it is, he is definitely not 7'2, but that could be a morning height. The 7'1.25 could be a lunchtime height after all, and not even a low who knows lol. I would say Richter's and Porzingis have a very similar height. I don't know how Porzingis got 7'2.75, when he is clearly over an inch shorter than Boban Marjanovic, they both must have gotten near out of bed heights. Boban is probably 7'3.25 in the afternoon(not low), and for Porzingis he is probably slightly under 7'2 at that time.
Boban Marjanovic: 7'2.75(Low)
Porzingis: 7'1.5-75(Low)
Olivier Richters: 7'1.25(Low)

This is the picture of Oliver with the 6'9" Redditor who says he measured that height without shoes (205 cm to be precise). Click Here Not sure if the angle is favoring one or the other?
cmillz said on 23/Feb/20
I doubt he’s much under 7’0, if at all. But to me, there’s zero chance he’s 218cm barefoot. Matter of fact, I remember a 6’9 redditor who posted a pic of himself standing next to Richters, and it looked to be about a 3-3.5 inch difference. I’ll see if I can find it later. The redditor also agreed that his 7’2 or 218cm claim is likely exaggerated.
Robbe said on 22/Feb/20
Big Rob lists Kevin Nash an inch taller than Thor. Here Nash with 7'3 listed Jordan Omogbehin.

Click Here

I find it very hard to beleieve Richters is only an inch shorter than Omogbehin. Yellow line on the right describes Thor standing next to Omogbehin. He would reach just below Omogbehin's nose. So, the gap between yellow and blue line is the difference between Richters and Omogbehin. Looks bang on 3in to me. Means Richters is no more than 7ft.
Eric C said on 20/Feb/20
@Rob Do you suppose there's any chance of Richters being sub 7 foot?

This listing is way off. This guy isn't over 7ft. Look at this picture he took with a guy who has repeated said he measured himself 205 cm barefoot. And he says that Olivier exaggerates his height. The most Olivier Richters is is 214 cm though I think he maybe more like 213 cm. Either way Olivier Richters is 7ft range NOT 7'1 or 7'2.

Picture above is heavily tilted, so it favours Richters. Here is corrected one.

Click Here

Mountains head is above Richters eyeline, so the difference is no more than 3.5-4in. Means Richter is at the best 7ft. Could be 6'11.5. Definitely not over 7ft.

Definitely a strong 7’2”
He’s taller then almost every giant he take pictures with... super big head also he tends to wear flat shoes a lot in the photos with others over 6’6” even.

I private messaged him and he quoted his morning height is 220.3cm and he claims 218cm as his honest low.

STRONG 7’2” in my opinion.
A man that large has no reason to feel insecure enough to lie.

Where's the outrage for those who inflate just about every celeb on CH? Why aren't you sick of them? Upgrading and downgrading are both equally bad, but the "downgraders" almost always seem to receive the brunt of the criticism.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/19
Sick of all these people below me who think it's the hip thing to downgrade an almost 7ft2 guy, like what they do with Arnold. It's pathetic



Anything 7ft1 is a joke and personally I think this mark is reasonable

Here he is with supposedly (but clearly not) 7ft tall Stefan Struve....

----------

Going back to this post because before I thought he was 6'11" range. I asked Olivier and he said he was 208 cm...So just under 6'10". So yes Struve at 7" is nonsense. He said that sometimes he is asked to stand further from the camera as some popular people don't like being exposed. "cough" Big show.
Johan 185 cm said on 9/Sep/19
He looks at least a good inch taller next to 8'1" Brahim Takioullah than Martin Paquette does. So I agree with Sotiris about his 7'0" estimate for that Martin guy. His 7'3" listing is way overblown.

Btw if you look on Instagram he has a pic with his father who is 6'6" and he is easily 8 inches taller. I suspect his father is maybe 6'5" today.

There are also pics of his mother's new house. He can't even stand up straight. The ceiling looks to be around 7'0 high.
Johan 185 cm said on 3/Sep/19
Well i emailed Olivier and asked him what his morning height is. He claims that he was measured at the doctor 220 cm in the morning and shrinks to 218 cm. I can believe that he shrinks a bit more to 217cm but not any lower than that.

So going from 7'2.5" to 7'1.5" is my guess roughly.

@Sotiris: yea Ibra at 6’4.5 is even questionable being he only measured 194 flat once. A sports measurement is not always an afternoon height but I’d be hard pressed to argue anything below 194 for Ibra as well.

Supermanfan380 said on 22/Apr/19
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.

Wow, I never heard of this guy before, I was looking through the most recent celebrities and I found this monstrously built dude.

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...

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

That is way more than 2 inches, 3-4 range minimum imo

@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).
