Wheelchair beauty queen crowned

Many beauty queens may wish for world peace, but Hungary’s loveliest wheelchair user has a more achievable goal in mind.

In an event unusual for Eastern Europe, the winner of a Hungarian beauty pageant for wheelchair users said she will be an advocate for improving access conditions for the disabled in the country.

Miss Colours organiser Tibor Kazany said the pageant is the first such event in Europe and will be repeated annually. In the US, the first Ms Wheelchair America pageant was held in 1973.
