Krystyna Pyszkova of the Czech Republic has clinched the coveted Miss World 2024 title during a glamorous event in India on Saturday, edging out Indian contestant Sini Shetty who made it to the top 8.

Miss Lebanon, Yasmina Zaytoun, secured the first runner-up position in the competition.

According to Press Trust of India on Saturday, Karolina Bielawska, the reigning Miss World from Poland, crowned Pyszkova as her successor at the star-studded finale.

This victory marks the second time a representative from the Czech Republic has claimed the Miss World crown, following Tatana Kucharova’s win in 2006.

Expressing her astonishment at winning the prestigious title, Pyszkova, who is in her twenties, confessed it was beyond her expectations.

During the pageant, Pyszkova’s ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ project emphasized “quality education for children,” and she pledged to utilize her platform as Miss World to amplify awareness for this cause.

Speaking to reporters after the finale, Pyszkova shared her excitement about the supportive community of Miss World contestants, vowing to continue her advocacy work.

“So far, we have helped 320 children. Through the Miss World platform, I’ll be able to help as many children as possible…

“The Miss World sisterhood is such an empowering community. I think we will be sharing this moment forever because we experienced so many things. We experienced this incredible country, India, together. I’ll be happy to come back soon,” Pyszkova told reporters here after the finale.

According to the official Miss World website, Pyszkova, a Czech model, is pursuing degrees in law and business administration and is the founder of the Krystyna Pyszko Foundation.

Fluent in English, Polish, Slovak, and German, Pyszkova advocates for sustainable development through education, citing her proudest moment as the establishment of an English school for underprivileged children in Tanzania, where she volunteered.

“Her proudest moment was opening an English school for underprivileged children in Tanzania where she also volunteered. She enjoys playing the transverse flute and the violin, and has a passion for music and art having spent nine years in an art academy,” read Pyszkova’s profile on the website.

India, which hosted the event after a gap of 28 years, was represented by 22-year-old Shetty.

The 71st Miss World pageant, featuring contestants from 112 countries, took place at the Jio World Convention Centre in BKC, with Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar and Miss World 2013 Megan Young from the Philippines as hosts.
