Throwback Thursday (08.01.13): 48 Years Apart

Thanks to Chilean Charm for Akiko’s photo & to Fan Pop for Riyo’s photo

Akiko Kojima of Japan won the Miss Universe 1959 title. 48 years later, the coveted crown returned to Japan after Riyo Mori‘s success in 2007! That’s half a century (almost)!!! It’s actually equivalent to 4 decades of waiting before Japan won its second Miss Universe crown! It is, in fact, the longest gap between crowns for a country in the pageant! I hope that Japan need not wait for another 50 years for its 3rd crown!
