miss world 1972

Belinda Roma Green won the 1972 Miss World contest, representing Australia, at the age of 20. Growing up in Sydney, she became the second woman from her country to win the title; the first, Penelope Plummer, was crowned Miss World in 1968. The pageant was held in London, United Kingdom.

After a year touring the world, including a stint with Bob Hope in Vietnam, Belinda returned to Australia to "go back to normal life".
