Chandra Bahadur Dangi(Nepal)was recognized as the shortest human ever by the GWR at the old age of 72. Until Dangi's recogniziation, the shortest human ever was Gul Mohammed (India). Since Dangi born before Mohammed born and Dangi died after Mohammed died, it means that Mohammed never became the shortest human ever. Coincidentally, Dangi born about 18 years before Mohammed born and Dangi died about 18 years after Mohhamed died.
