Alain St. Ange and Sultan Kosen

Sultan Kosen, the tallest living man in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records, met Alain St. Ange, the Seychelles’ Minister for Tourism and Culture. The meeting was held in the big top in the centre of Victoria, a few days before the official opening performance of the Magic Circus of Samoa in the Seychelles. Sultan Kosen is a member of the circus delegation and will be in the Seychelles until the third week of March. The people of the Seychelles will be able to come and see this incredible giant who will be attending various shows. It’s only the second time that a real circus has visited the Seychelles. The Magic Circus of Samoa came to the Seychelles for the first time three years ago.

Sultan Kosen is incredibly tall. He was sitting down while we were talking, but when he stood up for photos, everyone was impressed by his height,” said Minister Alain St. Ange, who was in Réunion today with Bruno Loyale, the president and director of the circus, to discuss the possibility of bringing the circus to the island of Praslin. “We’re continuing to encourage as many Seychellois as possible to come to the circus and we really hope that it’ll travel to the island of Praslin and maybe even to La Digue. There are lots of logistical issues to be dealt with, but Bruno Loyale is interested in the idea,” said Minister St. Ange.
