|MISS WORLD 2012-YU WENXIA|
|YU FLANKED BY MISS WALES & MISS AUSTRALIA|
|YU BACKSTAGE WITH OTHER CONTESTANTS|
Right in front of her own people at the Ordos Stadium in Inner Mongolia, China, the country's representative Yu Wenxia 23, was declared the new Miss World 2012, while Miss Wales, Elizabeth Moulds and Miss Australia, Jessica Michelle Kahawaty were the 1st and 2nd runner-up respectively. This is 2nd time lucky for China, her contestant Zhang Zilin was the trailblazer in 2007.
The new Miss World 2012, Yu Wenxia 23, is a Music Student, whose lifelong ambition is to become a Music teacher. This year's competition had the highest number of participants (contestants) in the history of the pageant, with 116 Queens from all over the world vying for the prestigious crown. Our own Charles-Granville Damiete represented Nigeria at the world pageant, though she didn't make the cut. The 2013 edition of the pageant would be at the South Asian Resort Island of Bali. Better luck next time Nigeria, Africa.
