Edward Niño Hernández of Colombia was first declared the shortest mobile male in 2010, only to lose the title to two others.

But this isn’t the first world record rodeo for the 2-foot-
4.3938-inch resident of Bogota, who turned 34 on Sunday. Hernández
in April 2010, when
he measured in at 2 feet, 3.64 inches tall.
Later that year, Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal, who stood 2 feet, 2.41 inches tall became the new record holder. He later lost the title to a fellow Nepal citizen: 1-foot-9.5-inch
Chandra Bahadur Dangi.
Both of those men have since died so the title is now passed once again to Hernández.
Meanwhile, 1-foot-11.6-inch
of the Philippines remains the shortest non-mobile man.
