Zilin Zhang (張梓琳) was the winners of both Miss China and Miss World in 2007. No Asian had ever been crowned Miss World before her. In school, Zilin Zhang was a good student and also a great athlete, who excelled in hurdle and triple jump. Competing in a high level sport surely contributed to her fit figure. Combined with her height and an beautiful yet amiable face, it's by no mean a coincidence that she won those beauty contests.
She is very tall (182cm = 6') for a female even by the Western world standard. In the popular China-based forum 'Tianya', there was a thread discussing about how Zilin Zhang always outshines other beauties in group photos. Her towering height may be a decisive factor of that, in additional to her gorgeous face.
