Universe> Miss Universe 2008 in Nha Trang, Vietnam, Asia
In July 2008 the 57th Miss Universe beauty contest was held in Nha Trang,
Vietnam at the Crown Convention Center. 80 beautiful contestants participated
in the annual beauty pageant before the 2008 winner was crowned on the
14th of July by the 2007 Miss Universe winner from Japan, Riyo Mori.
Miss Universe 2008 contestants were in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi
and Nha Trang, Vietnam to compete for the popular beauty pageant.
President of the Miss Universe Organization Ms Paula Mary Shugart
said "In selecting Vietnam as the host country we were
impressed by many factors. It is a beautiful country which will
be a most spectacular backdrop for a global telecast.. This
is the largest event of its kind ever to be hosted in Vietnam
and will have a special significance for viewers and fans in
the United States. But while Vietnam is a country with a rich
culture and thousands of years of history, it is not a country
focused on its past, it is a country very much focused on its
future, and what a bright future it is."
