SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, December 19, 2006.- Wilma Blasini, who has been part of the National Women’s Volleyball Team of Puerto Rico in several international competitions, now will represent her country in a world event, one where she will not be spiking and blocking.

Blasini hopes to follow the steps of five Puerto Ricans beauty queens that have been crowned while participating in the prestigious contest starting with the election of Marisol Malaret in 1970 and as recently as this year with reining Zuleyka Rivera.

She was member of the Carolina Giants team that won the title of the Puerto Rican Women’s Superior League three years ago and last season saw action with the Guaynabo Mets squad.

Blasini represented Puerto Rico during the 2003 Olympic Qualification Tournament in Santo Domingo and also defended the Puerto Rican colors at the Central American and Caribbean University Games in 2004 also staged in the capital of Dominican Republic.
