Rolene Strauss representing South Africa has been crowned as the 64th Miss World at this year’s final in London.
In second place was Hungary’s Edina Kulcsár, with Elizabeth Safrit representing the USA in third place.
In an action packed three weeks since arriving in London the contestants have taken part in the Miss World Challenge Events. These included a sports, top model and beach fashion competition, a talent contest, Beauty with a Purpose and a debate at the Oxford Union.
Miss Kenya was the other African among the top 10 finalists. The others were Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Guyana, England and India.
Miss Uganda Leah Kalanguka managed a top 25 spot in the People’s Choice category. Either way she is still a winner as the world fell in love with her and she has inspired youth to take part in agriculture.
