It is just three days before Miss World 2018 grand finale takes place in Sanya City, China.

The event, which will have over 100 beauties from across the world competing for the coveted crown, will see Zimbabwean beauty Belinda Potts competing for top position.

Speaking in an interview, Potts said she was ready to walk the runway and it would be her dream come true to bring the crown home.

"I want to thank Zimbabwe for voting for me. It meant a lot. I am so excited about my final night to be modelling in front of the whole world at such a big stage.

"That is as high as modelling could ever get and I am hoping that I make it to the top," she said.

Potts will be dressed by local award- winning designer Zarquesia in a shimmering blue sequined shoulder arm dress.

"Ishmael from Zarquesia Designs made this beautiful butterfly sky blue dress. It has nude lace and sequins. It is shiny and amazing and that is the final dress I am going to be walking in. I also want to thank Black Opal cosmetics for sponsoring my entire make-up," she said.

Potts added that she would leave everything into the hands of God and the judges.

"I believe I have done my best so far and I will leave it up to God and the the vivacious model.

The event will be screened live in all over the world.

Last year's winner was Manushi Chhillar from India.
