PRESS RELEASE – Standing at six feet four inches tall, Mark Sparks captured the hotly pursued title of Mr. Caribbean International at the thirteenth annual staging of the competition this past Saturday.
Before a sold-out audience at the Hedonism II resort in Negril, Jamaica, Sparks ignited the crowd and won over the adjudicators with his charm, chiseled features, statuesque physique and sharp intellect.
When asked what role he believes a man should play in his home and community, he empathetically stated that a man “should lead from behind and be a pillar of strength”.
Thirty-three year old Sparks, who is of St. Lucian and Jamaican heritage, was also presented with the award for Best in Interview and placed third in the competition’s rigorous fitness challenge.
Sparks was accompanied by 1st runner-up, Dwayne Walker (Jamaica) and 2nd runner-up, Godwin Charles (St. Vincent & the Grenadines) as the Top Three Finalists in the last round of competition.
Walker, who has represented Jamaica very well at several international bodybuilding competitions, also walked away as the winner of the fitness challenge and was presented with the sectional award for Best Physique.
Meanwhile, Charles, a trained dancer, was presented with the award for Best in Talent.
Sparks wins a cash prize of $2,500 USD and a seven night stay at the Hedonism II resort.
