Sports– Past editions of Miss World have had the contestants running, swimming, jumping, crunching, throwing, kicking, and so much more. The women’s physical abilities will be pushed to the limits through a series of individual and group physical competitions. The contestants must be prepared for anything and everything.
Beauty with a Purpose– The Fast Track event that needs no introduction. Beauty with a Purpose has raised over 1 billion dollars for charities around the world.
