Miss Grand International 2018 Clara Sosa’s crowning moment was a memorable yet quite a dramatic one on Thursday in Jakarta.
Upon being declared the winner of Miss Grand International 2018, Paraguay’s Clara Sosa promptly fainted on the stage.
At the time, she was holding hands with the first runner-up, Meenakshi Chaudhary of India, who tried to help but failed to catch Sosa as she collapsed and hit the floor.

The international beauty pageant’s finals were held Thursday in Yangon, Myanmar.
Before the announcement, the host asked the top 2, Miss Paraguay and Miss India, how they’re feeling. The former mentioned that she felt like she’s “going to have a heart attack.”
Sosa soon recovered and waved, cried and smiled to cameras.
Earlier in the night, contestants were asked which country they would visit to campaign for an end to wars and violence. Responding to the final question, Sosa said if she won she would “strategically” choose to visit President Donald Trump “because the United States is an example for other countries. So my first message to him would be: please be an example of peace, love and tolerance.”
Miss Paraguay gave an outstanding speech as part of the Top 10 and secured the crown with this snappy answer.
