A 2ft tall cheerleader from America has been named the world's shortest living woman by the Guinness Book of World Records

Bridgette Jordan, 22, from Sandoval, Illinois, stands at 2ft 3in - and also holds the record for being part of the shortest living siblings, alongside her 20-year-old brother Brad.

Jordan scooped the title from Turkey's Elif Kocaman, who stands at 2ft 4.58in.

"It feels awesome," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying of her record-breaking achievement.

'It's great to be small. I believe that everyone should be confident in themselves.'

Jordan's brother, who stands at a comparatively giant 3ft 2in and enjoys playing basketball and learning karate, added: "Hopefully this will go a little way to helping people realise it's OK to be different."

The tiny twosome suffer from Majewski osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II.
