Miss Teen USA Drops Swimsuit Competition For Athletic Wear

Miss Teen USA pageant is dropping the swimsuit portion of its competition in favor of Athletic Wear.

The Miss Universe organization announced Wednesday that the pageant will replace the bikini section with an athletic wear competition.

"This decision reflects an important cultural shift we're all celebrating that empowers women who lead active, purposeful lives and encourage those in their communities to do the same," said president of The Miss Universe Organization, Paula M. Shugart.

Reigning Miss Teen USA Katherine Haik called it "a great way to celebrate the active lives that so many young women lead and set a strong example for our peers."

There's no word if the move would carry over to other pageants, following this, shall we say, test, but with an age group ranging from 14 to 19-year-olds Miss Teen USA seems the likely place to start.

The 2016 Miss Teen USA pageant will be held in Las Vegas on July 30.
