Johannesburg - Miss World Rolene Strauss is preparing to hand over her crown this weekend in what has been billed to be a glitzy ceremony in Sanya, China.
Rolene has been in China since mid-November in preparation for the pageant. Pre-judging involving the 121 contestants from around the world has been taking place, including our own Miss SA Liesel Laurie competing.
The 65th annual competition will take place at the Beauty Crown Grand Theatre on 19 December.
Rolene, who has represented South Africa proudly during her reign, took some time to reflect on her journey.
Of course, there's always time for fun. Rolene has posted some bikini snaps, showing off her incredible body.
