One of the world’s biggest pageant organizations announced a big change to their program.

The Miss Universe organization told USA TODAY they will eliminate the swimsuit portion in Miss Teen USA pageants.

The portion of the pageant will be replaced by a new athletic-wear competition, according to USA TODAY.

Miss Universe President Paula Shugart released a statement, saying the change to athletic-wear will “celebrate women’s strength, confidence and beauty” in different, more constructive ways.
