Filipino dwarf, the world's shortest living man (2011-2012, 2015-), and a record holder at the Guinness Book of World Records. Balawing is the world's shortest man alive measuring 59.93 centimetres (23.59 in) tall. The declaration came during Balawing's 18th birthday celebration. Guinness World Records official said Balawing broke the record of Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal, who is 0.67 m (2 ft 2 1⁄3 in) tall.
He stopped growing at the age of one. Balawing, the son of a poor blacksmith, lives in Sindangan, Zamboanga del Norte, about 865 kilometres (537 mi) south of the capital Manila. Although he was documented as the shortest living man, he missed the title of shortest man in history, which was held by Gul Mohammed of India, who was 57 centimetres (22 in) tall and died on 1 October 1997.
In February 2012, Chandra Bahadur Dangi of Nepal, who stands 54.6 centimetres (21.5 in) tall was declared the world's shortest living man. As a result, Junrey held the record for less than a year.
Following the death of Chandra Bahadur Dangi on 3 September 2015, Balawing now holds the title of the shortest living man.
