Lai Huong Thao, a student of Hai Phong University's Accounting and Auditing Department, was crowned Miss Sport Vietnam 2012 at a contest finale held August 5 on Da Nang's Ba Na Hill.
Twenty-year-old Duong Thi Ha Giang of Hanoi was the first runner-up and 22-year old Giang Thi Chuong from Lang Son took the third spot.
Thao, 21, was also the first runner up at Ha Long Town's beauty contest in 2012.
She impressed judges with her "dancing with silk," which she has been learning from early age.
Besides dancing, she is a member of Quang Ninh province's volley-ball team.
Thao told Thanh Nien that she will donate ten percent of her prize to support disabled athletes.
She will also spend her prize on improving the charity activities in her hometown.
Thao will represent Vietnam at the Miss Supranational 2012 pageant held in Poland in September.
