Olympic Swimmer Elvis Burrows Set As Judge of Mrs. USA Universal Pageant

MIAMI, Florida, May 28. ELVIS Burrows, a 2008 Olympic Bahamian swimmer, will judge the upcoming “Mrs. USA Universal 2014 pageant on June 17, 2014, in Woonsocket, R.I.

Burrows will attend the “Mrs. USA Universal 2014″ pageant which features competitors who are twenty-five years or older and who have been married for at least one year.

“My first love in life is swimming, but women who are passionate about the competitions they compete in is a close second,” said Burrows. “I’m honored to be asked to judge this pageant, and I can’t wait to see what these women have to show.”

The Mrs. USA Universal pageant promises “an incredible journey for women, including meeting new friends and experiencing a pageant like you never have before!” With strong beliefs in “unity,” “empowerment,” “family,” “strong female role models” and “platforms,” the pageant guarantees competitors aren’t just a number and will never be treated as such.

The Mrs. USA Universal Pageant will have participants competing in five different areas, including interviewing, lifestyle and fitness, costume competition, on-stage questioning and an evening wear competition. The winner will receive airfare and hotel accommodations to compete in the prestigious Mrs. Universal pageant in Lumpur, Malaysia, as well as a Couture rhinestone crown and the much coveted Mrs. USA Universal 2014 sash.
