Meet Mandy

Mandy Bujold was born in Cobourg, Ontario. Moving to the Maritimes, she spent her childhood in Moncton, New Brunswick. As a teenager, her family moved to Kitchener, Ontario, attending Forest Heights and calling Waterloo Region her home. It was in Kitchener that Mandy began her boxing career at the young age of 16. She is a 10 time Canadian National Champion and is the first female boxer in history to win two gold medals at the Pan American Games. What makes these two gold medals even more impressive is that they were won back to back, first in 2011 and then defending her title in 2015. She is excited to represent Canada in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil.


Wish Mandy luck in Rio and share it with the world!

Mandy, I just read the news. You are one hell of a fighter to get into the ring against Cancan feeling the way you were. You did amazing considering the circumstances! Be proud of yourself for getting to Rio, and being an Olympian through and though - body, spirit and mind. Waterloo is proud of you!

Mandy, you may recall we met at the Canadian Tire Trade show last year. I work at ACI. My family has been following you. I have two girls that are 14 and 12. We are incredibly proud of you and your courage to step in the ring despite being so sick. I shared your update with my girls/family and its really heart breaking but we are so proud of you. My girls (we) are very touched by how you have handled this with such class, determination, etc. you are truly a great role model for our kids, future athletes and Canadians. Be proud and thank you for sharing your journey with us.
