LONDON – A 23-year-old Jamaican medical student, Jamaican Toni-Ann Singh, won the 59th edition of the Miss World competition here on Saturday with Ophely Mezino of France and Suman Ratansingh Rao from India, placing second and third, respectively.

Singh also won the talent competition after her performance at the “Beauty with a Purpose” Gala Dinner, advanced to the final round of the competition along with Miss Nigeria, Miss Brazil, Miss India and Miss France.

In addition to dancing to Jamaican singer Koffee’s Toast, she also performed her version of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” live.

The competition attracted 111 women from all over the world who come together in London to vie for the Miss World crown at the Excel Arena.

Singh said her parents were her role model and she would now have the opportunity to travel the world, making a difference through a number of philanthropic projects.

Miss World Jamaica took her final walk in a stunning silver dress after being crowned by Miss World 2018 Vanessa Ponce De Leon.

The three-hour broadcast saw contestants show off all the hard work they’ve been putting into the competition in the last few weeks, including prepping for a synchronised dance routine.
