A former Miss UK is preparing to represent her country again, only this time she will need more than a swimsuit in the sub-zero wilderness of the Arctic.
Della Draper, 40, is competing for Britain in a "survival-of-the-fittest" endurance challenge across 2,000 icy miles of northern Canada.
The blonde-haired mother-of-two will have to brave temperatures as low as minus 50C in the seven-day Fulda Challenge, which involves skiing, rally driving, ice climbing, dog sledging and Arctic snowshoe racing.
It is a far cry from 1982, when she was crowned Miss UK at a glittering ceremony in London and came runner-up for the title Miss World.

I'm not sure what an "oryx" is but here's the article:
------------------

Ellyn Colyer is looking forward to this year's Miss USA Pageant in Gary, Ind.
Colyer was crowned Miss New Mexico USA last month at Las Cruces, N.M., at a pageant to determine that state's representative for the 2002 Miss USA Pageant.

Colyer is a quilter, but she also considers herself as a hunter and camper.
"I've shot a black bear, a deer and an oryx," she said.
The Miss USA Pageant will air on CBS March 1.
