Answer

Maria shot up 8 inches between 15 to 17, quickly reaching 6'0" and then topped a couple more inches when she was 18. The biggest reason is the excellent nutrition she got as a professional athlete and the dedicated focus on exercise (up to 6 hours a day) during her growing years.

Check out a few pictures of her in the related links section, one in her athletic outfit from a few years ago and the other in a glamorous leather skirt where she has gotten taller and added more muscle.
