Junrey Balawing the next smallest man in the World?
He might only be slightly taller than a glass bottle, but Junrey Balawing is set to break big world records.
The tiny teenager will soon be crowned the world's smallest man, standing at a mere 22 inches.
The minuscule man from Zamboanga del Norte, in the Philippines, is already 17 years old but is just the same size as a one-year-old.
And when he celebrates his 18th birthday in June he is excepted to shave five inches of the current Guinness World Record.
He struggles to walk and can't stand for long, but he looks forward to wearing the crown with pride.
'If I were the smallest man in the world, it would be very cool,' he said.
His mother, Concepcion, 35, says she noticed something was wrong as Junrey approached the age of two but no doctor was able to help.

'He was always sick and we noticed he wasn't growing so we took him to see a doctor but they were baffled,' she says.
When Junrey was 12 the family took him back to the doctor but their only advice was to take more vitamins, which the family couldn't afford.Read more about this amazing boy on MFS , with one videoclip about him.
