At last we have a woman of colour as Miss England!!
Londoner Rachel Christie, the niece of shamed athlete Linford Christie, was crowned the first Miss England last night. Christie, 20, who is set to take part in the 2012 Olympics in the heptathlon, told organisers her life long ambition is to win gold at the 2012 Olympics.
Congratulations to Rachel, who's not just a pretty face!! Hopefully this will open the doors for more women of colour in such beauty pageants.
