23-year-old Granadilla girl Patricia Yurena Rodríguez has come second in yesterday’s Miss Universe contest, one of the “big four” beauty contests along with Miss World, Miss International, and Miss Earth. This year’s contest was held in Moscow, and was won by Venezuela’s María Gabriela Isler. Patricia was Miss Spain in 2008 at just 17 but was at the time one month too young to go on to represent Spain in Miss Universe that year. Now, five years later, she is runner up, the “primera dama de honor”. Congratulations, and well done to her!
