Pulls swimsuit round of competition

Miss World Pageant chair Julia Morley announces that the pageant will no longer feature a swimsuit round. The pageant plans to feature a beachwear round instead. Chris Wilmer, the national director of Miss World America/Miss United States organization:

The organization has decided to take itself out of the swimsuit world because it isn’t the path they’re trying to take. It’s not just a beauty contest, it’s ‘beauty with a purpose’. There didn’t seem to be a purpose to have the swimsuit. Miss World should be a spokesperson who can help a community. She’s more of an ambassador, not a beauty queen. It’s more about the outreach and what a woman could do with a title like Miss World. I salute the miss world organization for their efforts to try and modernize. Pageantry is an age old industry and I think with Julia getting rid of swimsuit and making it more of a lifestyle competition sends a strong message and I applaud her for it.
