Mandy was named KW & Area's Athlete of the Year for 2008 & 2015. (AofY article for 2008)
Bujold's major accomplishments:
Her 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 in 2007. One year later, she was the senior national champion in the 50kgm 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 medalist Lisa Whiteside of England. But Bujold’s career highlight is winning gold at the 2011 Pan American Games -- and, more recently, a repeat Pan Am win in 2015 -- 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. Bujold is a ten-time Canadian national champion.
