When the 65th Miss Universe officially unreels in Manila next month, all eyes will definitely gaze in the direction of Miss Ukraine Alena Spodynyuk who is being primed as one of the top picks among pageant sites and message boards to be a major contender for the crown. And just by looking at her photographs and video (below), I can’t help but react on the affirmative.
Here is a 5’9″ beauty from Crimea with moviestar looks and an overall classic face that can easily be scouted for a potential career in Hollywood as the next James Bond girl or leading lady in a blockbuster action flick. And why not? She used to be a professional handball player prior to winning the national title, and is used to the rough-and-tumble of sports and the like.
Alena Spodynyuk is definitely someone to look out for in the 65th Miss Universe. Here is an excerpt from the report made by Kyiv Post about her:
Spodynyuk says she has never taken part in beauty contests before– for the past five years she has been a professional handball player. She is currently preparing to enter the National University of Culture and Arts in Kyiv, and dreams of becoming a journalist.
It took her two months to prepare for the Miss Ukraine Universe beauty contest,and she had to overcome illness during the final, having to take to the stage despite having a temperature.
“The hardest part of the contest for me was theevening dress round, when the top five were selected at the end,” Spodynyuk recalls.
Below is a recent photoshoot of Alena as Miss Universe Ukraine 2016.

“I know what I need to work on, and what needs to be improved,” she said in an interview with the Kyiv Post.
