Meet the New Miss England
The first black Miss England, 20 year old Rachel Christie, is a professional track and field athlete who trains six days a week and is highly ranked at the 400 metres and the heptathlon. The title means the 5ft 10in Miss Christie will have to juggle her training schedule again as she prepares to face another hurdle – a bid for the Miss World crown in South Africa later this year. She is the niece of British track legend Linford Christie.
