The Land of Giants: The Largest Athletes in Sports History

8. Peter Crouch

Soccer is one sport where height is no real advantage. However, English soccer striker Peter Crouch has made a spectacular career for himself, playing for the English national team as well as several Premier League teams like Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur. He’s one of only 26 players to have scored over 100 Premier League goals, and he’s the fifth-most expensive player of all time.

Standing at over 6 feet 7 inches tall, Crouch’s almost impossible to keep up with on the soccer pitch and can shoot goals that most average players can only dream about.
