SA's Thato Mosehle makes the Top 3 of the Miss Supranational pageant

Namibia's Chanique Rabe bested 57 beauties from around the globe for the title of Miss Supranational 2021 on Saturday.

She was crowned by outgoing queen Anntonia Porsild of Thailand during the event's glam finale in Nowy Sącz, Poland.

Though SA's Thato Mosehle failed to clinch the crown, she still did the country proud placing in the Top 3. She was named the second runner-up with Karla Guilfú Acevedo of Puerto Rico being declared first runner-up.

The 26-year-old medical doctor from the North West also performed particularly well in preliminary portions of the competition including the Supra Chats challenge, where she made it into the Semi-Finals, and Supra Fan Vote. 

Mosehle was the first runner-up of the 2020 Miss SA pageant. As such, she was the first woman to compete in Miss Supranational under the official Miss SA banner. 

Ahead of the competition, Mosehle said that while she hoped to win, she felt that she'd already “developed and grown immensely” courtesy of the training she'd received from the Miss SA Organisation in the build-up to the event.

“I have had the opportunity of receiving life coaching, vocal preparation and current affairs training which will forever stay with me, even beyond the final night.”
