Karen Ibasco of the Philippines bagged Gold Medal during yesterday's Swimsuit Competition for Group 2 of the Miss Earth 2017 delegates. Trailing behind were Peru's Karen Rojas in Silver Medal and Russia's Lada Akimova in Bronze.
Around 30 of the 90 international delegates participated during the Swimsuit Competition held at the Versailles in Mandaluyong City.
The 90 delegates of Miss Earth 2017 were divided into 3 groups. Swimsuit Competitions for Group 1 and 3 are still to be contested soon.
Note: The Medal System doesn't have any bearing in the final selection of the Top 16 Semi-finalists. The medals are introduced to give credits to the girls who stood out in the mini-competitions. The Swimsuit Competition held earlier is not part of the actual preliminaries that will select the Top 16 qualifiers which will be announced in the coronation night on November 4th at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.
