AMY Guy's sporting prowess wasn't enough to see her triumph as the world's most beautiful woman at the weekend.
The Wrexham beauty qualified for the final of Miss World, which was held on the Chinese tropical island of Sanya, thanks to her abilities in the sporting section.
But despite winning the title of Miss Sporting World, gaining automatic qualification for the final and a 25-point advantage over 11 of the other contestants, she did not make it to the shortlist of three.
This year the winner was decided by a poll of viewers who could vote for their favourite via text message.
For the results Amy wore a strapless, white silk ballgown set with beads in a cross shape at the front.
She also wore a clogyn, a Welsh cape, during the ceremony, which she auctioned off at the charity auction to which all Miss World contestants contributed.
Amy was well supported by businesses across Wales but didn't get enough of the worldwide internet and text voting to reign supreme.
The competition was won by Miss Peru but Amy returns home the highest-placed beauty from the British Isles.
And the girl who once hitchhiked to Morocco in aid of the charity Link is unlikely to be too upset despite her burning desire to win the contest.
She will have plenty of engagements as Miss Wales before she resumes her job as a trainee architect.
Amy still has plenty of ambitions, including building her own house and owning a chain of sandwich shops - but for now she will have to settle for being considered Britain's most beautiful woman.
