MANDYMandy Bujold’s Olympic dream began after she won her junior national title in 2006. That result gave her the drive to be the best and make the national team. One year later, she was the senior national champion in the 50kg weight class and also won gold at the American Women’s Continental Championships, her first of three victories at the event. Bujold made her debut at the AIBA Women’s World Championships in 2008. She has competed at each edition of the global competition since, recording her best result in 2014 when she finished in the top eight after a quarterfinal loss to eventual silver medallist Lisa Whiteside of England. But Bujold’s career highlight is winning gold at the 2011 Pan American Games, the first time women’s boxing was included at that multi-sport competition. Bujold earned another multi-sport medal in 2014 when she captured bronze at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. A nine-time national champion, Bujold successfully defended her Pan Am Games title at Toronto 2015, defeating American world number one and 2014 world champion Marlen Esparza in the final. Bujold went on to earn her Olympic berth with a gold medal at the American Continental Qualifier in March 2016.
