Join Us in Wishing Mandy Luck
Hold your head up high as we are all very proud of your accomplishments on the world stage. Get well, take care and safe travel to you and your family.
We were so sorry to hear that you are in hospital - and you have to know that we didn't know about your ordeal when we watched the fight here - had to watch without sound because I was in a meeting. Despite that, you did your best against a formidable opponent - and we are all very proud of you.
Finding out that you dragged yourself out of hospital to compete puts you on the top of the podium in my books. You are a winner on all counts.
Way to go girl!!!!! There are no words to express your amzing journey and brilliant achievements. Congrats to one hell of an amazing and inspirational woman. You DID IT!!!!!! Woohoooo!
Sending you lots of congrats and cheers from the Newsgirls!!
Friend of the family. God bless.

Great to listen to your blogs on your website. Sounds like you are really enjoying the experience.
Mandy, I want to wish you the best of luck. I know that you could not be more prepared than you currently are and the chips will lie where they lie.
Your hard work and determination should be an inspiration to us all. Plus, your ability to always seem to remain grounded makes you an exceptional person.
I truly hope that you enjoy the overall Olympic experience. Make sure to take it all in as this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for just a select few.

Kick ass in Rio!!! I wish you the best of luck over there 😀
I saw this link on Facebook, cool site and I wanted to wish you good luck. So excited that you are at the Olympics, well deserved and much hard work to earn that. Go get what you've been training so hard for all these years....your Olympic Gold medal. I am looking forward to watching all three of you compete via lifestream or tv. Pleasure was meeting you at my boxing club Griffins four years ago when you all trained towards the Worlds at the training camp there. Proud of you.
Canada will be cheering for you
It has been a pleasure getting to know you. Wishing you all the best in Rio. What an amazing accomplishment! You will do an incredible job representing Canada as you go for gold. I can't wait to watch you in action. Enjoy the experience and take as much of it in as possible.
