    What about the women players??? How tall is Donna Kellogg? She looks tall when standing next to Emms but I can't be sure since Emms is quite short.
    Or Kamilla Rytter Juhl??

    At this rate, it'll be tough for me to break into the top 30: I'm right around 167 cm. I never knew Bao Chunlai was that tall. I didn't realize that from the vids.

    at the time I wrote that post, Google still had cached versions of those players' bios from the Athens Olympics website. At the time, it was the only resource I knew of that had heights for players of different countries. As you can probably see, the links are all defunct now.

    I don't understand why the Athens Olympics website is not available now, it's a shame.
    Anyway, thank you for answering.

    6" is nowhere near 100cm, let alone 183.

    From my memory, Tan Aik Huang (1966 All-England), Malaysian, was well over 6' (probably around 6' 2").
