The Trapps from Esko, Minnesota, have a combined height of 6ft 8.03in, which is equivalent to half a tennis court. Adam Trapp, the family’s youngest member, stands at a height of 22 feet.

The basketball player is 7 feet 3 inches tall. The next tallest is Savanna Trapp-Blanchfield, who stands at 6ft 8in, followed by Molly Steede, who stands at 6ft 6in. Both sisters, like their brother, have played sports throughout their childhood, with all three being recruited by their respective institutions for basketball or volleyball.
Krissy, their mother, is the family’s shortest member. She is 6ft 3in tall, whereas their father, Scott, is 6ft 8in tall. The five went to Dr. Anna Sudoh, an orthopedic surgeon, in December 2022 to be measured.
Each family member was measured three times throughout the day, both standing and lying down, in order to calculate their height using the average of the measurements. They were ecstatic to find that they had met all of the requirements for a spot in the record books.
