Derana Miss Sri Lanka 2012: Two winners due to Mess Up
Vinu Udani Siriwardena (19, from Dehiwala) was crowned winner of the Derana Miss Sri Lanka 2012 competition on April 5th. Then, after careful examining of the scores, it was discovered that Siriwardena was not the rightful winner, but Sumudu Prasadini (22, from Kurunegala)
Siriwardena had been crowned with all the honors by the outgoing titleholder. Then, the organization proceeded to fix the mess-up by crowning Prasadini as Derana Miss Sri Lanka 2012, thus declaring two winners. Ramasha Galappatthy came in 3rd place.
Although after the mistake it is assumed Prasadini will represent Sri Lanka in Miss World 2012 in Ordos, who knows what will happen or if maybe the two of them will actually compete, setting a precedent in the pageant.
