Miss Uzbekistan Mystery: Rakhima Ganieva Adds Allure to Miss World 2013
Theres a new face in the Miss World 2013 competition that has sparked the most interesting teaser. Currently trending worldwide is Miss Uzbekistan mystery and whether youre a fan of beauty pageants or not, youre most likely to be intrigued by this tale. You see, no one knows exactly where Miss Uzbekistan (whose real name is Rakhima Ganieva) came from, and some say she is simply an imposter.
According to the latest panic in the celebration of beauty, charm and talents, there is no Miss Uzbekistan title, competition or title holder. To put it bluntly, they are calling Miss Uzbekistan Rakhima Ganieva a fake.
You can see Miss Uzbekistan on the official Miss World 2013 website along with the other competitors and she appears as any other hopeful beauty pageant winner. While some are angered at the fact that a woman from a predominantly Muslim country that doesnt hold beauty pageants managed to slip under the ropes, avoid the hoops and land as one of the contestants, others are saying shes a beautiful girl and wondering what all the hoopla is about.
Is this a story of a gold-digger who wants to make a name for herself by claiming the title of Miss World, or is it the story of a girl who had a lifelong (well, 18-year-old) dream of becoming the most beautiful, alluring and charming girl in the world, but unfortunately she lived in a country that is described by the U.S. government as infringing upon human rights?

If she and her family are allowed to stay alive and well, over the next few years, without getting a bucket full of acid thrown at their faces, just maybe this will be another baby step toward a civilized society. I’m not holding my breath though.
When she registered for Miss World, didn’t she have to somehow prove she won her country’s pageant?
What a farce of a situation - it’s obviously a political move to put pressure on Uzbekistan. After all, how else could this girl have gotten into the pagent?
You think some young woman can just walk up to the pagent and get in by simply claiming to be the representative from some otherwise unentered country? One phone call would clear it up - “Hello, Uzebekistan? Y’ll got a contestant entered? No? Thanks much.” [hangup] “Okay sweetie, whoever you are, scram.”
Uzbekistan is hardly an “Islamic Republic”. It would be more accurate to call it a communist country since it is much closer to its Soviet roots than to its Islamic roots.
“Is this a story of a gold-digger who wants to make a name for herself by claiming the title of Miss World...”
That would be the usual beauty contestant story, so what?
I was deployed to Uzbekistan 2003-04. They are or were more Russian/Soviet than Islamic, at least the Tashkent gals working for KBR. Spoke excellent English & yearned for the old USSR, I am not making this up.
And good looking!!? Whoever this Miss Uzbekistan is, I can certify she is 100% Turkic/Central Asian/Uzbek!!
Eta devushka krasivaya! Prekrasnaya!
I knew a Uzbexk girl whose mum was Russian and Father Muslim. She had a gold Koran as a necklace charm but she adamantly insisted that she was not a loon praying 50 times a day to the east prosterning
Whatever. Pretty girl. Definitely NOT GUILTY.
That would be the usual beauty contestant story, so what?
I thought it was world peace.
Reading this story made me think of this guy, anyone remember him?
Eddie Edwards, known as "Eddie the Eagle" competed in the 1988 Olympics as the lone ski jumping competitor from Great Britain. He earned his place in the competition by virtue of the fact that no other Briton applied for it. He placed 60th in a field of 60 entrants, and became a laughingstock to some and an inspiration to Walter-Mittyish dreamers. The Olympic Committee was not amused and changed the rules for entry so that he never qualified again, although he tried.
Uzbekistan is a member of Russia’s Collective Security Treaty Organisation.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of China's statement is the phrase "terrorism, separatism and extremism." That phrase is one of the key rhetorical foundations of military cooperation within the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
The SCO is perhaps the most dangerous organization most Americans have never heard of. It is headquartered in Beijing and consists of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. India, Iran, Pakistan and Mongolia currently enjoy observer status in preparation for full membership.
On July 5 at the annual meeting of the leaders of the member states, there was a joint statement issued that included the demand for a timeline for the withdrawal of U.S. forces from SCO member nations.
That same day the United States responded by saying "our presence [in the SCO member states] . . . is determined by the terms of our bilateral agreements" -- in effect, ignoring the significance of the SCO and the joint statement signed by Mr. Karimov himself. Within 24 hours, the Uzbekistan foreign ministry reiterated that it was seriously reconsidering the presence of United States forces on Uzbek soil.
There is, of course, another part to this story. Two weeks after the riots in Uzbekistan at the end of May, Mr. Karimov visited Beijing. He left China with a series of agreements for contracts worth over $1.5 billion. Two weeks after the July statement from the Uzbekistan Foreign Ministry, the Chinese energy company Sinopec announced an additional $106 million investment in Uzbekistan. Ten days later, Uzbekistan announced the eviction of U.S. forces, which have been supporting counter-terrorism operations in Afghanistan. They will leave behind a completely modern base, upgraded at the cost to American taxpayers of millions of dollars, which can be used by either Russia or China.

In HS (the 60s) I was the 2nd pole vaulter on our track team for one reason only. Most schools had only 1 vaulter, many of our meets were only two schools.
Each event awarded 1st, 2nd & 3rd place points. So, my job was to get that 3rd place point. Which I sometimes did with a hair raising vault of 3 or sometimes even 4 ft! It was so funny.
Obama is President twice now and you actually posted THAT question?
