Miss Teen USA is trading in swimsuits for athletic wear.
Miss Universe President Paula Shugart said, "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."
Current Miss Teen USA Katherine Haik, who plays softball and dances, echoed the statement.
Could other pageants say goodbye to swimsuits?
Before the Miss USA competition earlier this month, the show's host and creative producer Julianne Hough told USA Today changes could be coming.
She said of the swimsuit competition, "In the next few years we may grow from that, but let's see where this year goes."
