Mary Spencer made her Olympic Games debut in 2012 and finished tied for fifth in the middleweight (75kg) category.

As a three-time world champion and five-time Pan American champion, Spencer carried much responsibility as a role model and national ambassador as women’s boxing made its debut on the Olympic program in 2012. Training out of the Windsor Amateur Boxing Club under the renowned tutelage of Olympic coach Charlie Stewart, Spencer is a proud Ojibway athlete originally from the Cape Croker First Nation.

She has been named ‘one to watch’ for The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity’s Most Influential Women list and is a Member of Motivate Canada’s GEN 7 Aboriginal role model initiative. She was also chosen by Proctor and Gamble as a CoverGirl for 2012.

Spencer captured world titles in 2005 and 2008 at 66kg and in 2010 at 75kg and has earned consecutive national titles dating back to 2004. Spencer began boxing in 2002 at age 17.
