Brunette carries country's high hopes

MARELISA Gibson, a 20-year-old brunette, has been crowned Miss Venezuela and will represent the beauty-obsessed South American country at next year's Miss Universe pageant.

The annual Miss Venezuela pageant is the one of the country's most watched programs and a source of national pride. Venezuela has won six Miss Universe, five Miss World and four Miss International crowns -- more than any other country.

Stefania Fernandez, a Venezuelan, was crowned Miss Universe last month.

Fernandez gave the Miss Venezuela crown to Gibson at the conclusion of yesterday's four-hour pageant.

Second place went to 22-year-old Adriana Visini, who will represent Venezuela in the Miss World pageant.
