She said: “This entire experience has been beyond my wildest expectations and I am delighted to have done so well. Poland is a magical country and everyone we met has made us feel so welcome. Thank you also to everyone back home for your wonderful messages of support.
“Congratulations to Chanique, she is going to be a fantastic title holder and I wish her everything of the best during the coming year,” said Mosehle.
