Miss Cayman makes her mark in China

| 17/10/2010

(CNS): With only two weeks to go before Miss Cayman Islands gets her chance at the world’s biggest beauty pageant crown, Cristin Alexander is already making her mark in China. One of forty girls selected out of over 120 contestants to compete in the swimwear semi-finals, Cristin’s six foot figure is catching some real attention at the Miss World 2010 preliminary rounds and rehearsals for the main event. Coming from a small country, Cristin is also doing exceptionally well in the people’s choice poll, in which she is currently (Sunday evening ) in the top ten. To keep her there and push her to the top of the ratings click here. Now in its 60th year the Miss World 2010 beauty pageant takes place in Sanya, in China’s Hainan Province on Saturday 30 October, when the reigning Miss World, Kaiane Aldorino, will crown her successor.

Over the next two weeks Cristen and her competitors will be involved in a whirl of rehearsals photo shoots, preliminary contests and special appearances to getthemselves noticed and into the final rounds of the contest.

    Having taken the time to have an in-depth look at each of the contestants, who they are, what they stand for, their personality and allowing their inner beauty to shine through, as opposed to having a quick glance at their pretty little face and where they are from, I have cast my vote for Miss Sierra Leone.

    Wow! What a proud week for young Caymanian ladies in the international spotlight!! Cristin, Cydonnie, Grace Gealey, Selita Ebanks!

    Cayman’s time is coming! We are a young country in comparison to even our closest neighbours but the talent is obviously here. Just a few more years and hopefully we will be know more for stars than for money laundering! 

    Hearty congratulations to all these Stars!!

    1115 and climbing. Someone please call  their family and friends in our sister city,Port Arthur,Texas. Lets call our familys in Florida,NewYork,England and anywhere else in the world they maybe, and ask them to vote. This will not make her win, but a strong showing in this part of the contest  can’t hurt her. It will also give her a good personal boost. Go Girl.

      How do you stop McKeeva from listing both of them as "achievements" by the UDP?

      Afterall, he has nothing else to point to.

        Anonymous @ 11:01 McKeeva and the UDP can and should take credit for our sporting and cultural achievements, why?  because under McKeeva and his government sports and cultural events are top priority,just check the records and you will see that Cayman does better in sports while under McKeeva and the UDP.As sports Minister(early 1990’s) McKeeva fought for Cayman and in particular the Ed Bush stadium  in West Bay to host a crucial leg of the then Shell Cup Caribbean Championships played between the host country,Jamaica,theBVI and St.Maarten,This event was awesome as Cayman  qualified for the finals in T&T by upsetting  the great Jamaicans winning by3 goals to 2 sending shock waves  through out the Caribbean and the world .The hosting of this event was also well organized allowing Cayman to host the Shell cup finals in 1995.In that tournament Cayman finished a respectable fourth place,this along with our victory over Jamaica two years earlier was the greatest achievement ever by a national sports team from the Cayman islands.Also in the early 1990’s Cayman played host to the CARIFTA games and just recently in April of this year.The 2010 CARIFTA games was one of the best games ever and this was only after 6 months notice(USVI pulled out),thanks to minister Scotland and the UDP government for promoting sports in Cayman,i can go on and on and on,sports tourism is on the rise,squash,beach volleyball,cycling and rugby is now putting our islands on the world map.by bringing visitors to our shores.There are lots of other positive things(too numerous to mention)that McKeeva and the UDP government have done to promote sports in Cayman.We can all thank the last government for contribution to sports also in particular the upgrading of our sports facilities ,but we as Cayman sports fans will never forget that it was the PPM government that killed the "Killer" Charles Whittaker by not giving him a chance to fight for a world title,under the UDP this would have never happened.In ending i would like to congratulate the UDP government in particular the sports and culture ministries for a job well done so far,this post is not relevant to the topic(i wish our lovely beauty queen Alex all the best) but Anonymous @ 11:01 must learn to get the facts straight before posting with clogged eyes and ears.
