Mandy PanAm '15

Congratulations to Mandy Bujold on winning the Gold Medal at The Pan Am Games this weekend. Below is a message from her

Hi Everyone, 

I just wanted to send out a quick message to thank everyone for the amazing support over the last few weeks during the Pan Am Games. The support we received in and outside of the stadium was incredible and the memories will last a forever. 
I didn’t get a chance to send out updates as the fights went along so I thought I would send out something now. 
What an amazing experience!! It’s hard for me to describe with words what it was like to represent Canada at these Games. All I can say is I have never in my life been more proud to be Canadian!! From the Organization of the event to the performances by my fellow teammates, Canada proved to be a true leader in sport! 
Our Boxing Team was very successful at these Games coming away with 6 medals (3 Gold and 3 Bronze). My Atlas boxing club teammate Arthur Biyarslanov claimed a Gold medal in 64kg after defeating Toledo of Cuba. This was an incredible accomplishment as Canada’s last male to win a gold medal was won 40 years ago. 
As for my performances… I boxed 2 southpaw boxers in the opening and semi final bouts. Peru was my first bout and she was a great young up and coming boxer who I had never faced before. In the semi-finals I boxed against Columbia. This was a rematch from 4 years ago in Guadalajara. She is always a tough opponent and being southpaw it always makes for a great fight. Winning these matches put me into the Gold medal fight against USA. This was a much anticipated fight for me. After the qualifiers last month I remembered coming out of the ring after boxing her thinking “I can beat this girl”. This time I went into the ring knowing that. It was a great fight and I was so proud to be able to share that victory with Canada. It truly was a GOLDEN moment for me. To hear the national anthem play is always special for me but to have a arena full of proud Canadians signing it with me was incredible. 
Thank you for sharing this experience with me and being part of this journey.
