The nearly century-old Miss America competition will drop its well-known swimsuit competition this year and will no longer judge contestants1 based on their physical appearance. 拥有近百年历史的美利坚小姐大赛今年将取消其著名的泳装比赛环节，不再以外貌评判选手。 "We are no longer a pageant2, we are a competition. We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance. That's huge," Gretchen Carlson, chair of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization said Tuesday on ABC News' "Good Morning America." The swimsuit competition will be replaced by a panel interview of contestants. The evening-wear portion of the competition will also be changed to allow women to wear something other than a gown if they want.
