Well, as you know the winner is  Miss Nevada Nia Sanchez, who beat out 50 other contestants for the 63rd title of Miss USA.  To say the fourth degree black belt in Taekwondo is stunning is an understatement.  Wearing a vivid red evening gown and taking on the topic of sexual assault made her personality and confidence shine through as she competed. 

What is so unique is that first runner up, Miss North Dakota Audra Mari also showed an athletic side in that she was a competive Ice Hockey player.  It is so great to see that athletics and fitness were taking the forefront for this high level of the beauty and prestige. 

Many other amazing stories of struggle and hardship were told by these amazing women throughout the night but in the end only one gorgeous and talented beauty can take home the crown  and for 2014 that was Miss Nevada.
