LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC)– Attention all D.C.-area women who complain about finding pants that fit. Next time you’re shopping, think about your neighbor Svetlana Pankratova and thank your lucky stars.

According to a Falls Church News-Press report, the 6-foot-5 Russian native has legs that measure in at 4-foot-4. She is the Guinness World Record holder for female with the longest legs.

Pankratova is an assistant coach for the George Mason High School girl’s basketball team and  a former Virginia Commonwealth University player.

The News-Press report says she also played basketball in Portugal, Israel, and Spain before retiring in 2000. She didn’t move back to the U.S. until 2010, after reconnecting with her college acquaintance and now-husband.

George Mason High’s head girl’s basketball coach learned that she lived in the area and invited her to get involved with the team during the 2010-2011 season.
