Mandy Bujold earns Gold at the Canadian Golden Gloves in Cornwall, Ontario

Friday, July 19, 2013

Tonight in the finals I faced Amanda Galle, the provincial champion from Ontario. This was a bout that many people have been waiting a long time to see. Amanda has a very aggressive style and she puts continuous pressure coming forward. My speed and accuracy was a big part of my game plan against Galle, and I was able to follow through with it the way I envisioned it. I came away with a unanimous decision win to take the Gold medal at the very first Canadian Golden Gloves event here in Cornwall, Ontario.

This was a great event for me to test some of the new things I have been working on since I’ve made coaching changes in my training. I am excited about the rest of the year and looking forward to my next events.

Coming up next, our national team will be heading to Ukraine for a tournament called the Nikolaev Cup the first week of September.

Thanks for your continuous support. I love getting your emails with encouragement during events.

Sincerely,

Mandy Bujold
