Miss Japan is guaranteed a top spot in the Miss World Final after being named Miss World Sportswoman in Port Elizabeth at the brand-new Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium this week.
Eruza Sasaki, a 21-year-old beauty, triumphed in a number of sporting disciplines including athletics and soccer.
She received her prize from the 2010 World Cup local organising committee CEO Danny Jordaan.
Eruza now automatically makes the Top 20 of the Miss World pageant.
Eruza’s hobbies include dancing, watching sport games and she received the record for the female high jump at the Junior Olympics organised by the Japan Olympic Committee.
Her goal is to become a sports journalist when she finishes her studies.
Eruza describes herself as cheerful, full of energy and her personal motto is “Never give up and keep a happy smile”.
Second in the Miss World Sportswoman mini-contest was Miss Jamaica, Kerrie Baylis, with Miss Hungary, Orsolya Serdult, in third spot.
The remaining 111 contestants still have a chance of a guaranteed spot in the Miss World Final if they win one of the following four fast-track events:
These will culminate in the crowning of Miss World in a not-to-be-missed extravaganza at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand on Saturday, December 12.
The two-hour final will be broadcast live to more than a billion viewers around the world.
The City of Johannesburg is hosting the spectacle for the second year running and will be showcasing its charms as well as those of the 112 contestants each representing her own country.
