18-year-old Olena Spodynyuk from Crimea, now living in Kiev, became the winner of the contest “Miss Ukraine Universe 2016”, which finale recently took place in the capital of Ukraine.
Talking about herself, the girl reported that she was very proud of her achievements in sport: she became the Youth Olympic reservist of Ukraine when she was 12 and has been professionally playing handball.
“I believed in myself, but it was so unexpected, since I’m the youngest participant and it was a little hard,” told Spodynyuk in an interview to the Ukrainian media.
The finale of the contest was held in the Hall of a five-star Kiev hotel and was closed because the Organizing Committee has decided, that now is not the time for open ceremonies. The Crown of “Miss Ukraine Universe 2016” was competed by 15 girls.
