Barbie volleyball player from Russia went from Belarus to the Miss Earth contest – and took the title – Girl of the Day – Blogs
Last weekend the Miss Earth beauty pageant was held in the Philippines. It is the fourth most prestigious after Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss International. The competition was first held in 2001. Then it was initiated by environmental organizations, which decided to choose not only an outwardly attractive girl, but also an expert in the problems of the world around her.
In 2019, Belarus was represented at Miss Earth by Alisa Manenok. The girl fought for the title with 84 beauties from all over the world. The jury declared the winner of the Puerto Rican Nellis Pimentel. Manenok became the fourth, having received the Miss Fire crown. “It was a very difficult competition, we really earned our titles with blood and sweat, and now we have a year full of adventure! Thanks to everyone who supported me, in this difficult time I really needed you! “ – the girl rejoiced.
Alice has an indirect relationship to Belarus. The 24-year-old model was born in Vladivostok and previously represented Russia at several competitions. Therefore, she had to explain the performance for another country on Instagram: “My father is a Belarusian, and my love for this beautiful country is boundless. I am insanely proud to go out under the red-green flag and represent my historical homeland – Belarus! “

In general, Manenok in her youth began not a modeling, but a sports career – she was engaged in volleyball and played for the professional club “Primorye”, which at that time plied between the second and third divisions of the Russian championship.
Having moved to Kazan to study, the girl still performed at the university level, but soon she finally chose the podium instead of the volleyball court. She did not forget about her past: fans nicknamed Manenok “volleyball Barbie” – and in 2016 the model reincarnated.
In beauty contests, the girl has great success: in different years she held the titles “Miss Primorye”, “Vice-Miss Tatarstan” and World Beauty Queen.
Alice is a spectacular girl. What is not a reason to admire?
