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.

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

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.

At most 6'4 not over
2MeterPeter said on 5/Aug/17
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
Flexbert said on 29/Jul/17
He used to be listed as 6'4 before he got world famous.
Slim 182 cm said on 29/Jul/17
6ft 4.5
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.
even said on 8/Jul/17
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
Original said on 28/Mar/17
About 6'4
Canson said on 25/Mar/17
192 cm 195 shoes
berta said on 17/Mar/17
i think bolt is a 194 guy ore even 4 mm under it
sam said on 14/Mar/17
Rob, how tall do you think the guy next to usain bolt is?

Click Here
Editor Rob: could be in the 6ft 2 range.
Canson said on 4/Mar/17
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
Peterson188cm said on 27/Feb/17
Rob, In your opinion, how tall is Blanka Vlašić?? She's listed at 6ft4 and she's very beautiful. :D

Blanka Vlašić and Usain Bolt 193cm / 194cm: Click Here

Blanka Vlašić and Carl Lewis 188cm: Click Here

What do you think Rob? Thanks
Editor Rob: could be 6ft 3 range
Peterson188cm said on 10/Feb/17
Rob your opinion, Usain Bolt looks 195cm here with cr7 ??

Usain Bolt: 193cm / 194cm
Cristiano Ronaldo: 185cm / 186cm

Look this photo:
Click Here:
Editor Rob: Peterson, he doesn't seem more than 3 inches taller, maybe a little less but of course he could be losing 2cm in posture.
berta said on 7/Feb/17
maybe this guy is no taller than strong 193? i can see hikm and alexandet skarsgård be about the same
S.J.H said on 3/Feb/17
People have no idea how a real 6'4 look like. Here below is a reference of korean model/actor Kwang-Soo Lee. Overall doesn't look under a guy like usain bolt and probably big fraction over. Just example how 194cm kobe bryant make usain bolt look 192cm

Click Here

Click Here

Click Here Kobe and Bolt (Kobe complete bald and Bolt had fraction hair) still look 2cm-ish shorter
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.
184guy said on 16/Jan/17
6'4 max
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.
Canson said on 25/Nov/16
He's 192 cm barefoot 195 in shoes
Johnson said on 23/Nov/16
Fraser Pryce is 157 cm no less!! People list him as 5 feet tall
SportsHeight said on 21/Nov/16
Rob, what do you think is the optimal height-to-weight ratio for all-around athleticism?
Editor Rob: I remember reading an article about it, maybe even someone posted a link on here, I'm sure it was 6ft 190 range, but we all know different sports might suit different body types.
BOBBYH3342 said on 4/Nov/16
over listed by a inch
S.J.H said on 18/Oct/16
Usain real height could be 6'4 or under. He only look at best 1.5" taller than 6'2-6'2.5 liu xiang
Johnson said on 16/Oct/16
@Rob Can you add the jamaican sprinter Shelly Ann Frazier-Pryce?? She is listed 152 cm tall but there's no way Allyson Felix has 16 cm on her
Dave said on 15/Oct/16
Having been beside him he seems no more than an inch and a half taller than me, which puts him more or less 6'3.5"
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 15/Sep/16
I have Scoliosis as well. I had no idea that he had it though.
Canson said on 5/Sep/16
No way he's 195cm with Kobe Peyton or Barkley. Clear differences. He's 192-193 barefoot and 195 in shoes.
Ice said on 23/Aug/16
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
More taller = more faster right?
Borats Chicken said on 17/Aug/16
Rob, what are your thoughts on usa runner justin gatlin height? could he really be 6'1?
Hole said on 16/Aug/16
The man is 6'5.. again more proof Usain with Sonny bill Williams..he not fully erect
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
straightahead said on 22/Jul/16
I remember that Blanka Vlasic always was listed 6'2 for about 12-13 years ago (before she got to be this superstar) and after she got famous, her height was changed to 6'4. It was the same with Asafa Powell... his height went from 6'2 to 6'3.

Blanka looking taller than Bolt is just the camera angles and it isnt easy to judge height from walking ppl... btw here Bolt is the one looking taller: Click Here and here Blanka has a 2-3 inch footwear advantage over Bolt, but still is only just over an inch taller: Click Here

Blanka being edged out by Asafa Powell: Click Here and none of them has anywhere near 9 inches on the 5'6 tops Felix, its more like 6 1/2 tops.

Bolt: 6'4
Blanka 6'2
Powell 6'2
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
Tunman said on 21/May/16
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.
Kavin said on 22/Nov/15

Actually, 172 cm for Mo looks closer. He can look very close to 5' 8", like Tom Cruise does.

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

I've only seen a grainy cellphone video of the meeting with Obama, and it's at such an angle that you almost can't tell anything. Where there other photos I missed from their meeting? I generally think he's around what he's currently listed.
Jacob said on 12/Apr/15
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? 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...
Peter said on 11/Apr/15
Joe Manganiello Usain Bolt Kobe Bryant 195
Stan said on 17/Feb/15
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
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.

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.

I saw him at Madison Square Garden a couple years ago participating in a warmup with some of the Knicks players. He looked more 194cm to me...
Lillo thomas said on 20/Mar/14
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!

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
MD said on 25/Nov/13
Well, Rob, and you forgot to mention in your comment that you don't even see Harry above 6'1.5".
[Editor Rob: there's a number of photos and 187 I think fits him with bolt, 6ft 1.75 might be his height]
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".

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
i dont understand how people say that bolt doest look much taller than cristiano ronaldo who is roughly this photo...Click Here

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!

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.

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.

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".

Seeing pictures with Cristiano Ronaldo I do not put him as low as 6'3 but 6'5 is too much as well, Liu Xiang is 6'2.5 and Bolt looks 2 inches taller so I think 6'4.5 or 194 cm is not improbable for him.

I've always thought he was 6'5, but having just seen a picture of him standing next to my mates brother who is no more than 5'11 (being generous) I can't see how it's possible. He hardly even looks 6'3 in the pic despite being closer to the camera. There's no way he could be taller than 6'4 based on that picture, an I'm struggling to justify even that. But if he was 6'5 he should have at least 6" on him, but my mates brother is fairly lax in posture and up to bolt's eyebrows. Maybe has a 0.5" heel advantage knowing what shoes he usually wears, but his posture and camera angle more than accounts for it. Pretty confused as bolt definitely looks a lot taller than 6'3 in other pictures, but like I said, I know how tall my friends bro is and the pic doesn't add up.
Candyman said on 21/Jun/11
Looks to be a very strong 6'4" or weak 6'5". Can't really be sure from the few pics submitted as shoewear and ground elevation seem to be issues. Yeah he got pwned by Emeka Okafor and that look on his face shows it, but christ that guy is 2 inches shy of 7 feet tall. Looks at least 2 inches taller than Lemaitre and he isnt even standing straight.

6-5 is just a BS fudged height for this guy. 6-4 he is.

Bolt looks over 6'4" with Lemaitre. He's not even stood up straight!

I think if he stood up straight he'd look like a legitimate 6'4" but no more there. I wouldn't rule out 195 cm though. 196 is too high.

Bolt isn't under 195cm IMO. Very tall, lanky frame.

4 cm on Christophe Lemaitre in that pic.

The more I look at it, the more I'm seeing less than 4 cm in the pic. Looks more 2, maybe 3. He's still not under 6'4" though.

upgrader@me this is the last argument I'll have with you, going by nearest cm 190.5cm(flat6'3) legit/strong 6'3 [191cm(6'3.25) 192(6'3.5) 192.5(6'3.75)] 193cm(flat6'4) legit/strong 6'4[193.5cm(6'4.25) 194cm(6'4.5) 195cm(6'4.75)] 195.5cm(flat6'5) legit/strong 6'5[196(6'5.25) 197cm(6'5.5) 197.5cm(6'5.75)] end of tutorial!

actually desifa@me 196-197cm are legit 6ft5 while 195cm is more of a strong 6ft4. I come from a country where we use cm's when measuring and usually 195cm gets rounded down to 6'4''thats probably why christopher lee always said 6'4'' when he gave his height.
Terryman said on 11/Jun/11
the previous listing was more accurate. 1,95m(6'4.75)

Rubbish. A 6'4 man next to a 6'5 man is going to look only slightly shorter, a inch is hard to notice, and besides tim is not 6'4 even anyway, to be be realistic the difference between 6'4.25 and 6'5 is not noticable, Bolt is taller than westwood and not just slightly taller either, he is clearly taller, under 6'5 bolt is not possible.

Did you see the rugby video where he stood next to a 6'4" guy and then a 6'6" guy? He was taller than the 6'4" guy, but he was CLEARLY closer in height to the 6'4" guy than he was the 6'6" guy, meaning he's probably somewhere in the 194 - 195 cm range rather than the 196 - 197 cm range.
