Update After Day 1: Mandy Bujold

Friday, May 17, 2013

Hello Everyone,

Update from day 1 of the continental Championships here in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela

Tonight I fought Mildred Cruz of Dominican Republic and won 21-7. This was a great opening bout for me to feel out the competition and get focused. I was able to win each round and gain confidence as the fight progressed.

In the other quarter final on my side of the bracket, USA- Marlene Esparza faced Columbian- Ingrid Valencia. Marlen came away with the win with a score of 17-14.

Tomorrow in the semi-finals I will face Usa’s Marlen Esparza. This will be a rematch from last year’s continental Championships. Bouts will take place at 5pm.

The other semi-final in the 51kg weight class will be Venezuela vs. Brazil.

My team-mate Kim Klavel also fought tonight in the 48kg weight division and won over Columbia 22-5!

Our team is off to a great start!

Also fighting tomorrow will be Vicky Pellitier (54kg), Stephanie Walker (60kg), Maude Burgeron (81kg)

More updates to follow.

Thanks for your support!

Mandy Bujold
