This is the running medal tally of Miss Earth 2012. While it doesn’t take a genius to understand how the rankings go, I don’t understand the lack of accurate updates. We all know that Miss Philippines Stephany Stefanowitz was awarded Gold during the Press Presentation as Darling of the Press. But why does she have one silver and one bronze instead? And where is the Bronze of USA’s Siria Bojorquez for the same? Unless the site administrator updates the same this morning, I would assume that he does not get the right feeds from the field reps. of Carousel.
Additionally, I don’t know how the points for those “arbitrary-looking” Green Ribbons (4th column) are computed. It makes the reader think that they are just as precious as the more important medals. Just look at India, Korea and Uruguay above. They earned five points from green ribbons (which are worth 20 points in the total) when Czech Republic’s Tereza Fajksova (posted separately as her rank can no longer be seen above since she is way down the line) has one Silver and a solitary point from Green Ribbons but has a cumulative score of just 12 points. What gives? Unless some clarifications are made, people will be in the dark as to how the tally is arrived at.
Even more glaring is Warrathaya Wongchayaporn of Thailand’s numbers below:
I am no expert at things like this so I base my understanding on how rankings are done in the Olympics or Asian Games. I won’t mind getting a reply from someone who knows better, preferably the ones doing the updates. 😉
