Rizal has been portrayed as taller than Leonor Rivera and Josephine Bracken.
In truth both women are taller than him. Scaling available photographs,
the comparative heights of Rivera, Rizal and Bracken can be estimated.
Based on Perard’s Anatomical Proportioning, their heights can be scaled as follows:
156.24 ± 1 centimeters (roughly 5 feet 2 inches) for Rivera,
154.22 ± 1 centimeters (about 5 feet 1 inch) for Rizal, and
164.38 ± 1 centimeters (a little over 5 feet 4.5 inches) for Bracken.

  1. Almost 10 years after it was launched, TV5 is now focused lately on sports, which, in the eyes of some media critics, is the perfect ingredient to make TV5 an "alternate" station, veering away from the never-ending network war involving ABS-CBN and GMA.
