Tuva Be Represented at the World Miss Asia Beauty Contest

Orlana Saryglar. Dangyna-2006. Tuva. Photo by Arthur MongushTuva is invited to send its national beauty contest winner to the World Miss Asia Contest which is to take place in Mongolia, September 18-19. But the 14-year-old winner of the recently held Tuvan 'Dangyna' contest Orlana Saryglar does not fit into the set international standards, Kima Dongak, director of the Tuvan contest, reported to Tuva-Online.

A 170-sm tall girl - quite high amidst Tuvans - is not high enough to compete with other Asian beauties, Kima regrets.

"We have to hold a new casting inviting tall Tuvan girls to take part in it. But they are usually unwilling. It's a hard job to be a model. And they do not want to work hard preferring to have fun with their friends".
