CASEY SANCHEZ – MR WORLD DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Mr World Dominican Republic 2016 Casey Sanchez confirmed it through his Facebook account:
Today I regret to inform everyone the news that I will no longer be competing in Mr World 2016. The past several months I have been so focused in preparing myself physically, mentally, and spiritually for what would have been greatest opportunity in my young career. I was extremely motivated and determined to give it my all as the representative of my country, the Dominican Republic. I was ready to get the job done with honor and integrity. Due to circumstances out of my control, I had to withdraw from the competition with a heavy heart. My journey however does not end here for I am already working on other projects and the future looks bright! Most importantly I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart the key people that prepared me for this opportunity and everyone’s unbelievable support. Hope everyone has a great day and stay tuned for what’s to come. Thank You.
Another candidate that won’t be able to compete is Colombia because he was denied a visa to England. Mr World Organization really needs to try to resolve this problems with the visas if they want more participants in the competition.
