Miss Colombia Made Country Proud, Represented It Well, Santos Says

BOGOTA – Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos congratulated on Sunday Colombian Laura Gonzalez, the first runner-up at the Miss Universe pageant, for her role in the event and stressed that the country was very well represented in the beauty contest.

South African Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, 22, was crowned the new Miss Universe in the beauty contest held on Sunday in Las Vegas.

“What pride Miss Colombia Laura Gonzalez, showing in Miss Universe pageant everything that Colombians are: intelligent, passionate and committed,” tweeted Santos.

“Congratulations for reaching the top, our country was very well represented!” added Santos, who attached a video of the moment when the Colombian responded to a question from the jury.

The second runner-up was Jamaican Davina Bennett.

This 66th edition of the Miss Universe pageant introduced for the first time a selection by geographic areas: four from Europe, four from Asia/Pacific and four from the Americas, in addition to four other candidates chosen by the six members of the jury.

Of the 16 finalists, six were eliminated in a first round and 10 remained, among them were Venezuela, Spain, Brazil and Colombia.

Venezuelan Keysi Sayago managed to reach the last round of five finalists, but only Gonzalez qualified for the final.
