MONTEGO BAY, St James — Lamis Hamilton walked away with the Miss Jamaica World 2018 Top Model fast track competition title during the staging of the event at the Sandals Montego Bay Conference Centre in St James on Saturday night.

Hamilton, who wore the Interlink sash, won from a field of 16 contestants in front of an appreciative audience and will be placed among the top-10 finalists of the Miss Jamaica World 2018 contest at the coronation show, set for Saturday, September 1, at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel in Kingston.

Kadijah Robinson, representing Fontana Pharmacy, was the first runner-up with Lawnda Jackson, Cetamol Menstrual, as the second runner-up.

The contestants first paraded in swimwear, designed by Mushroom, as they were introduced on stage by emcee Dahlia Harris.

They later appeared in casual wear designed by Heather Laine.

Entertainment was provided by Sandal Montego Bay playmakers.

Co-franchise holder Weston Haughton told the Jamaica Observer West that prior to the Top Model contest, Rushell Malcolm was declared the winner of the Beach Beauty fast track competition, also held at Sandals Montego Bay, which was closed to the public, while Amaya Lewis was second.

Malcolm will also be placed among the top-10 finalalists at the coronation show.

Haugton expressed delight at the staging of both fast track competitions, noting that patrons were treated to top-class modelling, compelling designs from local designers, and superb entertainment from the Sandals Montego Bay's entertainment department.

He explained that there will be a total of five fast track events before the grand coronation show.

“So far we have had Miss Jamaica World Talent, Miss Jamaica World Beach Beauty, Miss Jamaica World Fitness, Miss Jamaica World Top Model, and the winner of the Miss Jamaica World Beauty with a Purpose will be announced on the night of the coronation,” said Haughton.
