@Junior: he has scoliosis. It’s possible he was 6’4-6’5 range when he was younger and 6’3.5” today. He probably can’t stand straight
Tunman said on 13/Sep/20
@Dom
Van Niekerk was listed at 180 and that's exactly what he looks next to Sonny Bill Williams
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/May/20
Just because he slouches to look 6'2 with Barkley doesn't mean he is much shorter than Barkley. He can be 6'4 1/2 worst. After taking some look at the picture with Kobe Bryant could be tilt down camera angle from Usain side to give 1" shorter illusion. 6'4 3/4 was at least morning measurement.

How tall is wayde van niekerk??? Here is a picture with Usain bolt but Usain legs are spread. The girl beside is listed 165cm

He is no shorter than 194 even at low
Canson said on 19/Feb/20
@Alex: to be honest he can look 192 with a lot of people but I don’t see many pics of him in his prime. Maybe he was a legit 6’4-6’5 range guy then
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/20
194-195cm is likelier than 196cm and 193cm
Alex 6'3.25 said on 18/Feb/20
He looks more a strong 193 or a flat 194 cm..
Canson said on 1/Aug/19
@Dream: I think that is just the pics though. I would have Cam similar height with Kobe in a different pic. I would have Cam worst case he could be 6’4.5. But prob a weak 6’5 6’4.5-.75.

I think Bolt would be shorter than both today. But no telling if the Scoliosis drops
Dream said on 27/Jul/19
With Kobe Bryant, Usain bolt edges out Cam Newton, slightly.

Honestly, I think this guy's posture is kinda like Idris Elba. He doesn't usually stand at his best. He hunches back a lot and his legs are usually spread, making him look shorter than he actually is.
Dream said on 27/Jul/19
@Canson @Rob @Tunman

Actually, I think Usain Bolt looks close with Kobe.

Click Here

While Kobe looks a little taller, I think Usain is more hunch back and relax in posture. 192-193 cms could be due to hunch back posture.
Canson said on 19/Jul/19
@Tunman: I have Ibra being the taller of the two. Bolt doesn’t look nearly that tall with kobe. He looks 192-193. I don’t question Ibra’s listed height other than to say that he’s 194cm range whether it be 6’4 1/2 or 6’4 3/8 so Rob has him close enough
Tunman said on 18/Jul/19
Rob,if you had to choose between Bolt and Ibrahimovic who would you say is taller?We could flip a coin on this one,I feel both could be in that 194 range or 6'4.5"
Editor Rob
Maybe Bolt can give a taller impression at times.

Sampex, people his height loose 1.25 - 1.5 inch from the moment they get up from bed and the moment before bed plus depends how active they were that day
Sampex said on 19/Apr/19
196 - out of bed
194 - before bed
K.A 188 said on 10/Apr/19
Solid 6ft4
Ian555 said on 13/Mar/19
Rob if you were would choose any of these heights which one would you choose? 6’ 4” flat, 6’ 4 3/4” or 6’ 5”?
Editor Rob
For Usain 6ft 4.75 or 5, 6ft 4 seems impossible.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Mar/19
I would believe Usain is as low as 6'4 1/4 although sometimes he could apear like 6'3.75-6'4 and maybe its just that his posture wasn't that good but he still wouldn't be 6'4.75" need 0.25-0.5" downgrade here.
Tunman said on 18/Jan/19
Rob,they now have Yohan Blake at 6'1.I wonder how they end up with such listings.I mean 5'11 was probably not too far from the truth although he doesn't look more than 5'10 but 6'1?The thing is that he certainly wouldn't claim that height himself.I'm curious to know how the whole thing works.
Editor Rob
An honest mistake maybe...they can't be serious!
soo yung jun said on 14/Nov/18
No way hes 6'5
Canson said on 5/Oct/18
6’3.5-.75. He may have lost a fraction but even peak he wasn’t 6’5 barefoot. That’s a shoe height. He’s significantly shorter than Peyton and about an inch shorter than Kobe
Emil said on 17/Sep/18
@Truman

Asafa is 6'1 +/- 0.25 inch I'd say. Solidly tall dude but nowhere near his 6'3 listing lol
Mickie said on 16/Sep/18
Bolt looking at least 1.5" short of Peyton Manning: Click Here
Bolt looking about .5" than MJ: Click Here

I think he's looking 6'3.75" range a lot. As mentioned, he could be losing a fraction of height in his stance due to scoliosis. I think he's likely about 6'4.25" standing with proper posture. Whether he could still stretch up to full height for a measurement is debatable.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 14/Sep/18
@Junior

I doubt it. Usain's case is mild but not severe, which isn't enough to really affect height.
Canson said on 13/Sep/18
@Junior: I think 6’3.5-.75 max. Kobe has an inch or 3cm and Barkley has a full inch almost
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Sep/18
I think if he didn't get scoliosis he would reach 6'6 but i'm sure he look at least 3/4 shorter than Kobe but footwear look to be disadvantage on Usain. I did give him 6'4 1/4 a chance.
viper said on 31/Aug/18
Yeah, I think he's 6-3.5 now
Canson said on 28/Aug/18
Way overlisted. Maybe pre scoliosis he was 6’4.5 but today he’s 6’3.5 or so
Yas said on 27/Aug/18
Listing is spot on.
Tunman said on 21/Jul/18
Any idea about Asafa Powell?he looks nowhere near 6'3,at least a solid 3" smaller than Bolt.Maybe around 186-7?Also roughly 3" taller than 5'10-11 Gay.
Warren said on 13/Jul/18
I thought he is more 6'5.25 or 196cm

@Tunman: I can see half Inch for Bolt as a possibility. I have a friend with scoliosis now that had lost 1.5 according to he and his wife and he deals with pain albeit prob not as severe as your cousin. He doesn’t have the issues your cousin has just pain which he manages with PT etc. still works a physical job. My aunt also had it and lost height prior to (2” according to her).

But to Christian’s point as well he’s an athlete. Most athletes claim their shoes. Track and Field guys that I went to college with claimed their shoes as did Tennis Players and Lacrosse. I had a guy claim 6’1” that wasn’t over 5’11.5 prob and wasn’t even a basketball or football player. He ran track. I can absolutely see a 192cm athlete claim 6’5”. Michael Phelps (who I’ve met in person and isn’t more than 6’2.25-.5 like Rob has him claimed 6’4” for all of these years and got away with it so Bolt easily could. He was easily 2” shorter than Me when I met him in Atlantic City
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 31/Jan/18
@Tunman

People's claims should be taken with a small grain of salt. You have guys like The Rock and Kane Hodder claiming 6'5" but neither of them were over 6'3".
Tunman said on 31/Jan/18
That said I can believe that he's only 6'4.25" or 6'4.5" like 194 it's not impossible.I know the dude is not the most humble person but I doubt he would have claimed 6'5 if he was only 192-3,more like a weak 6'5 man rounding up imo.
Tunman said on 31/Jan/18
@Canson
Trust me,I have a cousin that had scoliosis so can perfectly tell the reality of it.
First of all Bolt had indeed scoliosis but it was a very slight one that was immediately treated by specialists.Could it have taken a small amount like 0.25"?Always possible although I don't think so.
My cousin, in the first stages of hers (late 2009-mid 2012) didn't lose any height and always looked near 5'6 or maybe 167.I saw her too often to be mistaken.However in that first period she didn't suffer that much just complaining from back pain now and then.
BUT it's only when the disease got worse after 2012 that I witnessed the real shrinkage (a good 3 cm at that time),but the thing is that her health deteriorated significantly with serious back pain,feet problems,bone fragility and so on.To make everything clear she's forced to keep a very low weight to avoid pressure on her back,lower body and feet not to speak of the pills she has to take daily.Besides that she really became fragile.
Now do you think that a professional athlete who broke world records,and was essentially the best until the end (and even running 9.95 s in 2017 required a perfect health and preparation),would have suffered what my cousin did?The answer is clearly NO.
If you want to argue about someone who must have lost height after scoliosis then think about Kurt Cobain.I would agree with that.
Jeremy said on 16/Dec/17
Anything from 190-193 is crazy. He’s look 194-195 and is much closer to 6’5” than 6’4”. 196 in the mornings
Nik said on 20/Nov/17
He is nearer 6'4" than 6'5"!
Canson said on 19/Nov/17
@Anonymous and Anon176: he may be a candidate for a possible peak and current height. To be fair before scoliosis got bad, he may have been 6’4.25 or .5 and be down around 192 now (i know Anonymous mentioned 6’3). He looks a good 3cm shorter than Kobe and a good 4 or so shorter than Peyton Manning and shorter than Charles Barkley by somewhere around there too. Not to mention Peyton is a peak 6’5 and change may not be today and Kobe and Barkley are 195 and 194/195 respectively
anon176 said on 17/Nov/17
@Editor
Don't you think Bolt needs a downgrade to let's say 6ft 4.25?
Anonymous said on 14/Nov/17
Bro. 6'3 at most. Have you seen him next to 5'8 James Corden.
Canson said on 12/Nov/17
I agree Bard. Everyone likes to use what someone claims then if he doesn’t look it say with Charles Barkley it’s aleays that Barkley is taller and downplays his height. That just shows he isn’t a legit 6’5 like he claims. Barkley is for a fact 6’4 5/8 and almost and inch taller Kobe is around 195 and about an inch taller. My guess is that Bolt isn’t more than 6’3.5-6’4 today but after scoliosis. I say that last part because any time you downgrade a celeb you hear about it yet when people upgrade them or exaggerate how tall they are it’s ok for some reason
Janet said on 8/Nov/17

@Tunman
There are other pics were Vlasic edges him. I think Bolt lies abouut his height.
Bard said on 6/Nov/17
Agreed Canson, 6'5 peak morning pre-scoliosis.
Canson said on 3/Nov/17
@Tunman: with Charles Barkley or Peyton Manning he doesn’t look 6’4”. Looks max 6’3.75 with manning. In the pic with Barkley that doesn’t add up. I know several people who have met him that have him 6’4/6’5 essentially what he measured at the olympics. Maybe bolt wasn’t standing straight because it looked a lot more. Bolt might have been a legit 6’4.25 or more at one point but he does have scoliosis
Tunman said on 21/Oct/17
To anyone thinking he's shorter than Blanka VlasicClick Here
The only reason why she could look taller is that because she wears heels at some events and there is not way she has more than 1" on him in them.That makes 1"difference in Bolt's favor.That makes him 194-5 since she's 192.You could make a case for Bolt being 193 since Rob said Blanka could only be 6'3 or 190,5.
For now I'm leaving Bolt at 6'4.5" and Blanka at 6'3.5".Any estimate under 6'4 for Bolt is not serious.
Canson said on 21/Oct/17
This guy is nowhere near 6’5 barefoot. Look at him with Charles Barkley who is 6’4 5/8. He’s max 192cm. But he does have scoliosis. Either way I doubt his peak was 6’5. Probably more like 193.5 or so. Maybe a peak pre scoliosis of 6’5 out of bed
anon176 said on 26/Sep/17
The lowest you could argue is 6ft 3.25 since Vlasic (192) edges him.
hardguy said on 14/Sep/17
tall legit 6'5+
Canson said on 31/Aug/17
Michael Jordan is 6'4 1/2. Bolt is at least 1/2 shorter if not 2cm. Manning also has him by 1.5". Best case for Bolt is 6'3.75
Canson said on 28/Aug/17
This guy isn't more than 193cm barefoot. I'd actually say 192-193 (6'3.5-6'4)
Unanimous said on 26/Aug/17
I see 6'4.25-6'4.5 range.
Canson said on 23/Aug/17
@RXH: I doubt he's as tall as Jordan. That's at worst half inch difference.
Canson said on 23/Aug/17
@Arch Stanton: I would. Kobe has close to an inch on him if not a full inch

RXH said on 19/Aug/17
He looks to be the exact same height as Jordan, maybe a centimeter under. I think this is a perfect listing.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Aug/17
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/17
Rob, how likely is 192cm for him?
Editor Rob: seems hard to believe, 6ft 4 is the lowest I'd try to argue, but 6ft 4.5 is very believable.

I wouldn't try to argue 6'4 flat!
Canson said on 16/Aug/17
@Matthew Robinson: inhave him at 192 but that's because he likely doesn't walk as tall with scoliosis. He could easily peak be a legit 6'4 guy but with Barkley and Manning he really looks lower than 192 as his posture is very poor with both. With Jordan I wholeheartedly agree with you on Jordan he is 6'4 1/2 barefoot and always has been most know that who are true basketball fans. He's "near 6'6" in shoes 6'5.5-6'6. Even with MJ his posture appears a bit better but still looks 192-193. I can say maybe a leak height is 6'4" for him
Goiman said on 10/Aug/17
Buddy, 200m record holder , add that in.
Usain's unusually tall and has fast twitching muscle fibres in his legs- basically sprinter legs. These two factors allow him to gain on his competitors as he gains full stride through the race. His records Will remain forever, unless someone who's 0.25' inches taller than him and can run as fast as him comes into frame. Otherwise, he's the GOAT in athletics.
Mathew Robinson said on 9/Aug/17
I actually don't think he looked much shorter than Michael Jordan. I think that Jordan is a good 6'4.5" and Bolt would appear to be maybe just a hair under 6'4" - however I think Bolt is dropping slightly more height than Jordan. I think he'd measure 6'4" - 6'4.25" range.

Looks a solid 6'4.5" today, 5 inches above some of the athletes who claim 6ft+ (Gatlin).
Canson said on 2/Aug/17
@Flexbert: I believe his 6'5" is shoe height maybe slightly rounded up never looks more than maybe 192-193cm range
Canson said on 28/Jul/17
@SJH: I would say Kobe has him by "about" an inch of the stances were corrected. But you could be right. Looks about 1/2" under Jordan with him. I initially estimated 192 based on how he looks with Barkley and Peyton Manning but maybe it's due to the ooor posture he has at times (scoliosis). The absolute most I would give him is a solid 6'4" his 6'5" is with shoes on
Canson said on 28/Jul/17
@Bobby: lol MJ is around our height at most maybe a tiny fraction taller. He may be 6'4.5 at his lowest whereas we dip to 6'4.25 or 3/8. Bolt is 192cm today
bobbyh3342 said on 27/Jul/17
see you guys cant downgrade MJ Kobe and Charles from 6'6 and put them at 6'5 and not downgrade all these others( Bolt, Robbins, mangiello, vaughn,) usain bolt is 6'5 like MJ is 6'6 These stars are not giving there barefoot heights , we cant take stars on there claims and not take others because we know what they were measured barefoot, MJ still claims 6'6 to this day
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 26/Jul/17
He has such a minor case of Scoliosis. Mine causes for my neck to be completely bent over, a hunched over back, legs that are shaped like an x due to the bones being curved and uneven shoulders/hopes. I wonder what his tricks are for standing up straight.
Canson said on 24/Jul/17
No way 6'4.5. Not with scoliosis look at him with manning or Jordan or Barkley. 192cm range today
Frank said on 8/Jul/17
Bolt is 194 cms barefoot and with good posture, without doubt.
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
Ok: I agree with you I'm 194cm and can tell I walk taller than him just looking at him as well as with Jordan or Barkley who are 194-195 tops both are taller as is Kobe who is 195. He's 192 now but I would not be surprised since he does have scoliosis if he did initially hit 6'5" or 195cm. Your spine curves and you lose height.
ok said on 27/May/17
Find him 3cm shorter than listed but super tall
Sam said on 22/May/17
Rob, are the heights based off a bust a gut measurement or just generally standing up straight with good posture? Because I was thinking someone like Bolt could hit 6'5 if he really stretched himself out.
Editor Rob: more like holding good posture but not busting a disc in your back!
Canson said on 4/Apr/17
6'3.5-6'4 barefoot. That's today don't know how tall he was pre scoliosis may have been 6'5" originally

Bolt in fairness could've been taller at one point with scoliosis having hit him. He's likely 192cm now tho compared to 194-195 Michael Jordan or a 194-195 Charles Barkley or a 195/196 Peyton manning

Canson said on 23/Jan/17
195 in shoes
192 barefoot

He looks minimum 1.5" shorter than 6'5.25 (in his prime) Peyton manning who is still likely a full 6'5 today. But don't know if the scoliosis has something to do with it. He may well be a legit 195cm had he not gotten that. I've heard people lose an inch or 2.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 1/Dec/16
Rob, could his scoliosis be the reason why his height fluctuates so much? Because at times he can look a legit 6ft5, and other times he can look as short as 192cm.
Editor Rob: Christian, it doesn't look severe, but certainly it might at times have caused him some injury related issues, maybe even postural at times.

I have Scoliosis as well. I had no idea that he had it though.

No way he's 195cm with Kobe Peyton or Barkley. Clear differences. He's 192-193 barefoot and 195 in shoes.

hes a legit 195 cm guy . He is a elite level athlete so I highly doubt that he shrank from skuliosis at his young age .
Dmax said on 22/Aug/16
@Guanzo No cause then tracks would be like basketball dominated by tall men which you are not seeing so that is an answer to itself.
Canson said on 21/Aug/16
He's shorter than guys who are more mid 6'4 to high like Kobe MJ or Barkley. He's 6'5 in shoes today. Maybe in his prime before scoliosis he was over 6'4 and got a morning measurement but doesn't look now
Guanzo said on 19/Aug/16

jessman said on 15/Aug/16
Michael Johnson, former athlete from US, referred to him again and again on BBC Olympics coverage as 6'6 following Bolt's victory in 100m. Johnson has met Bolt. He described Carl Lewis and Linford Christie as about 6'3. He was probably an inch too high for Lewis and Christie, probably two inches too high for Bolt. Maybe a bit of hero worship led him to exaggerate slightly on Bolt?
Roger said on 15/Aug/16
There's no way he's that short. He must be at least 6'6, he absolutely towers over other sprinters.
Canson said on 13/Aug/16
@jessman: he looks about that or 192cm which is how he looked with Peyton Manning and Charles Barkley in pics
jessman said on 5/Aug/16
I looked at the photo of Bolt with Paul O'Connell and Bolt is about 3cms shorter. I'm assuming similar footwear. I live in the same town as O'Connell and have passed by him often. I would estimate O'Connell at 196cm max. He is listed 198cm but this is too high for me. I'm 192cm. I last saw him in 2015 and, after walking by him, my friend estimated O'Connell to be one inch taller than me at most....we had similar footwear, I checked. To me. This suggests Bolt is about 193cm. Thos is what he looked next to Ambrose and Walsh.
Hole said on 4/Aug/16
Looks 6'5 standing next to Johnny Damon...Prince Williams with his wife and brother Harry..Shaka Hislop...(Simon Zebo...Paul O Connell---ruby player)
Canson said on 4/Aug/16
@Brandon: good insights
Brandon said on 3/Aug/16
I think he is 6'3.75" barefoot and he measures 6'4.75" in your average pair of shoes and then rounds up to 6'5". That is most likely where his 6'5" claim comes from and also why he is listed 6'5". Running shoes are usually about an inch thick.
Canson said on 25/Jul/16
@straightahead: 6'4 tops for him. I'd say he's in the 192-193 range maybe like 6'3.5-6'4. And latter if he's hiding height. He looks around an inch shorter than Kobe but may have lost some from scoliosis
S.J.H said on 22/Jul/16
6'4 at best
Canson194 said on 17/Jul/16
@MD: very true what you said. It can be inherited. I have relatives who have and have had it prior to surgery. He may legit have been 6'4-6'5 in his prime before surgery but looks around 192 today
MD said on 23/Jun/16
Actually, scoliosis is also something that can develop well after birth due to diet, diseases, etc...
Canson said on 23/Jun/16
hes 6'5 in shoes that's it. And the kind he has on or Jordan's boots etc. 192 cm is how he'd be in public. Wouldn't surprise me if he were shorter than a Jared Padelecki or only maybe an inch taller than Michael phelps (at most). I've seen phelps up close he's 6'2-6'2.5 (latter is tops)
the Slav said on 23/Jun/16
Scoliosis is something youre born with. However, Bolt's case isnt anything to be concerned of. He would probably be a few mm to 1cm taller if he had surgery.
I actually lost half a cm when my meniscus was injured because it locked my left knee and made me unable to stand completely straight. My posture was quite similar to Bolt's actually
After surgery I regained the height though.
And who knows, maybe his scoliosis is what that has made him fast

Blanka was once listed at 192 in french newspapers L'Equipe (75kg).somewhere between 192-3 possibly 6'3.75".
Canson said on 6/May/16
There's absolutely no way this guy is 6'5!!! Look at Kobe and Barkley and Jordan with him. Now if the scoliosis comes into play and he really did lose height than he is simply claiming his "natural" height what he was before the scoliosis. Otherwise, I agree with KROC and Bobby3342. He's 192 cm. weak 6'4.
grizz said on 30/Apr/16
@Rob,I believe your estimate on Usain's height. However, Click Here , how tall do you think Blanka Vlasic is?
Is she really 193-194 cm,as listed,or a bit shorter?
Editor Rob: 193 is quite possible
Alex said on 27/Apr/16
Hey rob, I just found out ussain bolt has scoliosis. It's a real shocker considering he is the fastest man in the world, I don't really notice it on him; but, I found it in many places that he suffered from congenital scoliosis when he was young. If his back was 100% straight, how tall do you think he would be?
Editor Rob: really depends on the severity...from looking at him I doubt it is that severe, maybe a cm extra if mild.
Canson said on 22/Apr/16
He is shorter much shorter than Peyton Manning and Barkley Kobe Bryant and even Michael Jordan. Like KROC said below he's "about" 6'4. possibly even 192cm 6'3.75 and 6'5 in shoes.
Gary said on 5/Mar/16
Your be surprised, but according to this picture, he's slouching a tiny bit, which gives off the impression of 6ft4.5-6ft5.

Looks about 6ft4.25 in this photo. In my honest opinion, he's gotta be a strong ass 6ft4 guy and weak ass 6ft 4.75 guy.
Canson said on 26/Dec/15
I'm with Bobby. He's a weak 6'4. He's shorter than MJ Kobe Barkley Brady etc. doesn't look like he'd be much if at all taller than Conan who is really only 6'3 barefoot.
SportsHeight said on 14/Dec/15
Rob, how tall do you think Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete Ashton Eaton is? He's usually listed at 6'1", occassionally 6'0" or 6'2".
Editor Rob: not familiar with him, but at a glance 6ft - 6ft 1 more than 6ft 2.

5' 7.5" for Mo Farah, I'd say looks spot on.

I still think either Bolt needs to be further downgraded or Barkley needs to be upgraded from 6'4.75". Click Here I vote for the latter.

Tunman said on 20/Jun/15
6'2.5?lol he's 194-95 no more no less.
Even if we consider that Jonathan Ross lost a small fraction that still makes Bolt nothing under 6'4.5.Could he dip under that mark after a day of training?that's the big question.It's not impossible.Ultimately that could explain why he looks shorter than guys like Barkley or Bryant who everyone will agree won't dip under 6'4.75".
Maybe he could be the same as Ibrahimovic but not shorter than him for sure.
Sal said on 11/Jun/15
I googled a pic of Peyton Manning and Michael Jordan and one of him and usain bolt came up and Bolt was looking more like 6'2.5" I was shocked
AdeyP said on 10/Jun/15
@ gokul. I don't think his body fat is exceptionally low for an athlete, it's normal for an athlete. There are athletes with more extreme body fat percentages than bolt. As already pointed by archstanton, weight of boxers, athletes, swimmers will fluctuate most based on the muscle mass they carry. There slight body fat change affect their appearance far more than their weight.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Jun/15
Rob can you add a photo?
Arch Stanton said on 9/Jun/15
@Gokul, muscle weighs more than fat. If you consider how long his legs/limbs are and muscle, in a guy as tall as 6 ft 5 it's going to weigh a bit. That said, I agree he looks more in 200-210 range than nearing 220.
MD said on 9/Jun/15
I mean, yeah, he's very low bodyfat, but he's also quite muscular, especially now. I could completely believe the over 200lb listing for him. He's lanky as hell, but he's also packed with muscle in his torso.
Gokul said on 8/Jun/15
i have no doubt that Bolt is 6'5". Its his weight that i am circumspect about. At that low a bodyfat i think he's no more than 200 pounds

Didn't look 4 inches taller than Obama. I'd say he's closer to 6'4" than 6'5".
SportsHeight said on 11/Apr/15
Rob, how tall do you think Olympic gold medalist Michael Johnson is? Sports-Reference.com lists him at 6'0", everywhere else I could find lists 6'1". Never any higher. Carl Lewis was sometimes listed at 6'3", usually at 6'2". Never any lower. And yet here's a photo of them together in 2012:

Click Here

Johnson was 44 at the time, and Lewis was 50. Do you think Lewis has lost a significant amount of height, are the shoes exaggerating here, or have either of them been listed wrong their whole career?
[Editor Rob: you can see him with Bolt, somewhere in 6ft-6ft0.5 range might be possible...I think the photo with Carl, maybe he's closer and looks bigger? He can look 6ft 1 at times...

I bet he was under 216pounds nowadays. He get off like 10-15punds and doesn't look like a barefeet 6'5 guy like Kobe Bryant where i remember Kobe edge Usain by an inch or abit over in a close up picture
Tunman said on 17/Feb/15
solid 6'4 would be quite too low,Andrea.Of course he can look that sometimes but generally he looks closer to 6'5.I think 195 is fine,not sure he would be shorter than Ibrahimovic.
Andrea said on 20/Jan/15
Even with 6'1 C. Ronaldo he look more 6'4 range than 6'5... So, i'm not convinced he's a big 6'5 anymore! Could be just a solid 6'4 guy...
Andrea said on 18/Jan/15
Arch, you must admit that with measured 6'4.75 like Charles Barkley or Kobe he does look shorter! I always thought he was easily near 6'5 but now i wouldn't be surprised if he was something like 6'4-6'4.5! Just saying... A 6'4.75 would be better to begin with, since 195 is his "official height"...
MD said on 18/Jan/15
@Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" (you need a easier screen handle. lol), well, Bolt is listed as 195 cm on his own personal website, so 6'4.75" is more accurate. He's just under a full 6'5".
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" said on 17/Jan/15
He looks 6'4.75" by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jan/15
LOL is there anybody Andrea you think might be a legit 6'5"? How about Clive Mantle and Ralf Moeller? You can't dispute those guys being 6'4" range!!
Andrea said on 16/Jan/15
Rob, i have always thought he was near enough 6'5 but with Charles Barkley and Kobe Bryant he actually looks shorter than that! Could he be 6'4-6'4.5 rather than a big 6'5? Maybe you could start by downgrading him to 6'4.75 which is actually what his official site says!
[Editor Rob: he can look at times 6ft 4-4.5 range, other times he looks near 6ft 5]
176,2Tunman said on 24/Dec/14
Excellent pic Arch,and for one time we could say it's as perfect as the HC pics as Bolt isn't tilting his head down.
Anyways Jonathan Ross reaches his eyebrows I would say and maybe a very very small fraction over them.I think he's at least 3.75" taller and maybe 4" depending of his eyebrows level.6'5 is honest and the lowest arguable is 6'4.75"
I always thought vaughn was not a full 6'5 rather 6'4.5
WalkingTall 6ft3.25 said on 13/Jun/14
But with Kobe here Click Here looks almost the same...i think Bolt's range should be 194-195 cm....he's not a full 6'5 guy!
WalkingTall 6ft3.25 said on 10/Jun/14
Click Here with Charles Barkley looking way shorter....maybe the angle/footwear/posture has something to do with this...
Nick said on 3/Jun/14
I disagree with 6'5" listings here is the proof quite clear indeed Blanka 193cm listed is same height if not a tad taller then Bolt consider even a little camera angle disadvantage for her Click Here there're also other pictures around they look identical or in some Blanka is a wee bit taller
Arch Stanton said on 30/May/14
Click Here Looking a solid 6'5" next to Jonathan Ross. In fact he looks a bit taller in comparison than Vince Vaughn looked.
Nick said on 28/May/14
Bolt looking slightly shorter than 193cm listed Blanka Click Here she is not wearing any heels it might be a tad closer to the camera though that makes them same height at worst or best depends on how you see it ;)
KROC said on 18/May/14
@Andrea
I could be wrong... there's always a surprise with some people. I wish there were some better pictures with Kobe. He's a legit 195cm.
Andrea said on 24/Apr/14
KROC, you really think he might be 6'4 flat? I'd be shocked in that case... I do think he's no less than 194... And yeah, i think Kobe would be taller, but just a bit...
Patrick said on 20/Apr/14
1.95 official
KROC said on 13/Apr/14
He barely looked 6'4 in person. I'd bet money that Kobe Bryant would edge him out.
176,2Tunman said on 8/Apr/14
Yeah,about 6'5 or a hair under it at worse,and Blake is 7"shorter,so 6'4.75"for Bolt and 5'9.75"for Blake makes all sense.
MD said on 7/Apr/14
He is AT LEAST what he's listed. Not every athletes lies about their height, and I believe we have more than enough evidence to say he's bang-on what he's claimed. He could have claimed 196cm and he actually claimed 195cm. If Rob wants to put him at 195cm - which I think he should do - that'd be fine, but he's absolutely not shorter than that.
176,2Tunman said on 5/Apr/14
No way 6'3,if Bailey (listed 6'4 but rather 6'3 in my opinion) thinks he's 6'6 then they can't be the same.Honestly the worst he could be is 6'4.5" and 6'4.75" (195 like in the official site)is probably the truth.
Jay said on 5/Apr/14
HE's 6'5, quit underestimating his height people.
Adiaino said on 3/Apr/14
Height and weight for this guy is exaggerated.Not 6'5 208 lbs.Looks more at 6'3 193 lbs.That's why this guy is the fastest runner in the world,because the weight for his height is very light.I heard the average weight for 6'5 is 240 lbs and 6'3 220 lbs.

James kobe briant is about 6'5 ( 6'4.75 without shoes 6'6 with shoes on) by his own admission. Usain bolt is looking 6'4 flat next to kobe.
James said on 20/Mar/14
Bolt can be a full 6'5" and still an inch to inch and a half shorter than Charles Barkley. Barkley is 6'7" in b-ball shoes. As I have said many times, Chuck purposefully lowers his stated height to heighten his rebounding accomplishments! I think the picture of Bolt with Kobe looks dead on. 6'5" and 6'6" respectfully. Has anyone seen Bolt dunk? He does it with absolute EASE!
Tor said on 15/Mar/14
i don't see Blake more than 176-177cm, but also no less than 175
176,2Tunman said on 14/Mar/14
Tunman,not Truman,MD,I'm from Tunisia.
I meant that being listed 3-4cm or more over real height proves that they aren't measured.SO,why giving an official listing if you don't measure someone?
You agree it's sad to provide fake data,right?All I wanted to say is that since the global informations about sportsmen(unlike singers,actors,etc...) include their height these sportsmen should be measured before being listed at a mark to give accurate data to the readers. If you list OFFICIALLY someone at 180 and you don't know if it is true,the information becomes just useless.
MD said on 11/Mar/14
Truman, are you serious? You think approximately an inch difference is an unusual gap between an atheletes listed heights and what he or she actually is? That's a rather a rather small listing difference. Athletes can be two or three inches (sometimes even more) shorter than what they are listed.

BTW, I still don't see Yohan as being closer to 5'10" than 5'9".
176,2Tunman said on 8/Mar/14
One thing is sure,he didn't appear the 180-81 listings,he reached the bottom of Bolt's nose which is maybe 7" rather than 6.75" difference if we assume that Bolt has 9.5-9.75" head.177-8 is perhaps more accurate so 5'9.75-10 but no less.
I find it strange that Professional athletes could be that far from their listings.1cm variation is possible if someone is measured rather in the morning but 3-4cms? some aren't measured,that's clear.
[Editor Rob: some national athletic bodies may measure athletes and give actual measured listings, some might not though!]
MD said on 6/Mar/14
Maybe it's because he's muscular, but I actually think Yohan Blake looks more 5'9" than the 5'11" listings I see of him.
176,2Tunman said on 4/Mar/14
Rob,how tall is Yohan Blake if Bolt is 195? Maybe 178-9 is more likely than 180?He looked a good 16 or 17cms shorter than Bolt in London Olympics.
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't put him over 178cm]

Probably he is a little shorter than 6'5". I saw a pic with him and blanka vlasic. She is a legit 6'4" (192-193 cm). They were very similar. So a more realistic height for bolt is 6'4" (192-193 cm)

Blanka is no way near 6'4... and if she appears Bolts height, that thanks to her heels! she is around 6'2 and Bolt is 6'4
Lo sgozzatore said on 6/Dec/13
I doubt he'd measure just 193, he always looks huge to me! Maybe he's not a full 6'5 but he does look pretty damn close to that mark!
Lu said on 5/Dec/13
Asafa Powell were always listed 6'2 (188 cm) before he became a huge star, and it was the same with Blanka Vlasic, i remember for sure that she was listed 6'2 or tops 189 cm like 10 years ago (because i had a crush on her ;)

And about Bolt, i have seen numerous of 6'4 listings for him long time ago (before he became this superman)

So all of these grew over night together with their superman/woman status.
Search images! Asafa and Blanka next to each other - similar height.
Powell: 188 cm
Vlasic: 188-189
Bolt: 193

Well, Rob, and you forgot to mention in your comment that you don't even see Harry above 6'1.5".

daddy cool said on 25/Nov/13
Yeah, 3in might be closer to the truth. That pic definitely proves Bolt is minimum 6'5". They are standing face to face, on even ground and both are wearing sneakers. Harry is a solid 6'2.5" guy. No arguing there.

I would say 6ft 4.5in for Bolt. Maybe 6ft 5in.
dick dastardly said on 15/Nov/13
bolt is in the 6'3" range. Max 6'3.5". he looks taller because of his bodyframe, small waist with "skinny long legs". The pic with legit 6'5" charles barkley is more than clear. And of course asafa powell is not 6'3", but closer to 6'1".

Arch Stanton said on 13/Dec/12
An inch is not much Sylinher, but I do think a genuine 6 ft 5 guy will stand out more as "huge" more than a guy who is weak 6'4"-6'4". If you watch Bolt run he towers above all of the other runners. But he's pretty skinny and lean, an endomorph, if he was built like Yohan Blake at 6'5" and a mesomorph he'd be an absolute monster physically but that would slow him down running I think.
Sylinher said on 4/Dec/12

Is Vidic really only 189cm? Looks taller than that next to Bolt and Bryant.
joe joe said on 19/Nov/12
A 6'5 guy would tower a 6'2 guy like vidic a little more me thinks. to be honest alot of sports measurements can be inaccurate with some being with shoes on making people taller and some measurements still being online form people youth days making it seem they are shorter. For years the brazilian Ronaldo was touted as 1m 80. mainly because of lazy stat keeping. He started playing pro soccer at the age of 14 and by 17 he was 1m80. he had a growth spurt at 21 to 1m 83 but it took a good 5 years before this was on record. I also have a friend who is a pro soccer player and he is down everywhere as 1m 96/6'5 but he isn't that tall. he will tell you he's 6'4 but he is closer to a big 6'3. Im 6'1 and don't ever feel towered by him like a 6'5 guy does. but everywhere he is listed as 6'5 even though he says he is shorter. The moral of the story is you cant trust the number. sometime they lie
James said on 14/Nov/12
He was the same size as Jeremy clarkson so I think 194-195cm is closer

6'5 is actually 195,58, so a strong 195! So the listing covers his site's listing! Btw, Bolt claimed 6'5 in different occasions, so this is ok!
MD said on 12/Aug/12

Bolt's own site lists him as 195 cm. You can keep the 6'5" if you want to, but he's technically 195 cm, which is what he gives himself as.

accurate listing for 6'4.75 but no idea why rob round him up as 6'5 ?

Rob usain bolt is listed 195 Cm so 6"4.75 but can be that tall. I don't doubt it

Unreal,
I saw him today next to 6,4 bailey at the 100m final. Bailey is probably closer to 6,3.5 but Bolt had a minimum of 2 inches on him. Imo, i believe seeing him next to legit 6,4.25 clarkson is enough proof that he is indeed a legit 6,5 or 196cm. I am 6,3.75 (legit) and I am telling u that he would no doubt have me by an 1.5 inches. Also, today Donovan Bailey was describing him as 6,6 (he did 2x in fact).

Usain Bolt is a legit 6'5", measured barefoot.
John said on 30/Jul/12

Asafa Powell has also been listed as 188 cm (the only height I've heard from a sports commentator's mouth, but then again I don't watch a lot of sports)

Powell's XVIII Commonwealth Games entry:

~6'4.5". Looks even taller because of his slim frame.
Shaun said on 12/Dec/11
I was kidding actually, but 6'3.5" for Usain Bolt is extreme. I can't see him a hair under 195cm.
MD said on 8/Dec/11
Shaun,

Are you serious with that picture? It's is clearer than day that Powell is half-seated. lol No judgement either way can be made off of that picture. I largely tend to believe he's the height listed, here (though probably exactly 195cm, since that's what's on his own site), but that's a terrible picture.

Asapha Powell is listed at 6'3". Are you telling me he is 6' tops? LOL
Shaun said on 7/Dec/11
LOL have you actually seen Usain Bolt standing next to Asapha Powell??? More chance of 6 ft 6 than 6'3.5". If you jammed a stadiometer right down crushing him he'd still not measure under 1.94m.
Shaun said on 7/Dec/11
My doctor measured me at 1.86789304442 metres!! He used a magnifying glass to get my height to the nearest gazillionth of a cm.

LAN Jiao says on 15/Oct/11
Im 196.55cm i won put bolt lower than 194.5cm. He is similar looking as kobe and jordan height.

The latter is true, does look the same height as them (195cm) but I'd bet top dollar you are not genuinely taller than Usain Bolt barefoot LAN Jaio!!! 196.55 is um, a little precise isn't it? When measured on the stadiometer by the doctor/nurse they usually round the measurement to the nearest cm. LOL the thought of my doctor telling me my height to the exact mm.
Martin said on 29/Nov/11
He does not look THAT much taller than confirmed 185 cm Ronaldo.
Tman said on 18/Nov/11
I would say 1,94-5m Click Here
Physics Enemy said on 16/Nov/11
Yes Shaun, Bolt is how a legit 6' 5" 'looks'. Aided by his lean, muscular, long legged, lanky build. He's 6' 3.5" I believe. Jed is pretty clued up on height.
Physics Enemy said on 16/Nov/11
Jed's account is interesting, I've had a read. I used to think Bolt was close to 6' 5", that was back in the days when I was less clued up. With Bolt's type of build he could be 6' 3.5" and still look a solid 6' 5". He's lean, muscular, with long legs. I'm going with 6' 3.5". It's tall enough for him to appear a solid 6' 5" and explain's Jed's mates' pic where he's clearly below 6' 4".
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Nov/11
Yeah Lan Jiao, i agree with you! He looks it! He could also be 194 but no less! He always looks very very tall! 6'5 is actually 195.5 and 195 is just a shade less than that!
LAN Jiao said on 8/Nov/11
bolt is 195cm.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 7/Nov/11
Yeah he actually could be 6'4.5 and rounds up to 6'5! But no less than that! He always towers everyone in competitions! Last time i saw him running, my dad said joking:"how tall is him? 220?"! He actually looks huge and has a very good frame, wide shoulders,...
