The sports challenge was an all-day competition where the women competed in various track-and-field events — a 60-yard dash, a team relay race, the long jump, and more. The women were divided into four teams and then the top athletes from each team competed against one another. The green team dominated, as it featured all three top finishers. The results are:

1st place: Miss British Virgin Islands Rikkiya Brathwaite
2nd place: Miss Nigeria Nyekachi Douglas
3rd place: Miss Trinidad & Tobago Tya Jane Ramey

Brathwaite said on Facebook of her win, “I’m honestly very overwhelmed. I’m not an athlete by any means! I gave up track and field at the age of seven for ballet shoes and a stage. But I come from a very athletic family so it must still be somewhere in my DNA still. I am just truly grateful to come from a country with a competitive heart when it comes to track and sports.”
