MANILA - Roberta Angela Tamondong was named as this year's Miss Eco Teen International.
Tamondong was crowned on Sunday following the pageant’s coronation ceremony in Hurghada, Egypt.
The first runner-up was South Africa's Jordan van Rensburg, followed by Danielle Dolk of the Netherlands, Kenzy Elzeiny of Egypt, and Cecilia Romero of Paraguay as second, third and fourth runners-up, respectively.
Prior to the culmination night, Tamondong was already a standout in the pageant’s pre-coronation night events, with the Filipina beauty queen winning in three preliminary competitions.

She also finished second runner-up in the Talent Competition for her "Luzviminda" dance.
On top of these, Tamondong also fared well in the Resort Wear Competition, finishing first runner-up to Miss South Africa.
