THE TEEN GIRLS OF KINGSWAY BOXING WELCOME CANADIAN OLYMPIAN MANDY BUJOLD
The Girls Teen Boxing Program is run by coaches Virgil Barrow and AIBA International Referee, Jennifer Huggins. After recognizing the incredible impact the sport has had on her life, she felt it was necessary to share her passion with the youth of the community. The girls who participate in this class learn the technical components of boxing and are given an opportunity to explore their confidence in ways that will help them in all walks of life. We look forward to welcoming the girls back and opening the doors to others looking to share in the experience.
“I’ve been very fortunate to be involved with the Olympic Boxing Qualification process leading into Rio 2016, visiting many countries and officiating the top athletes of the sport.”
Jennifer has also had the honour of watching some of our talented Canadian boxers reach the Olympic level, including PanAm Gold Medalist, Mandy Bujold. Representing Canada over the past decade, Mandy is a true hero in and outside of the ring.
WELCOMING CANADIAN OLYMPIAN MANDY BUJOLD
It is with great pleasure that we will be inviting Mandy to coach the final Girls Teen Boxing Class of 2016 on Monday December 5, 2016.
“Mandy has been a true ambassador of the sport, inspiring our boxing family and friends. Her dedication and perseverance led to achieving her ultimate dream of making it to the 2016 Rio Olympics. She has influenced athletes around the world to achieve their dreams and to step into the ring to fight for what you believe in. After Mandy attended the Fight To End Cancer Gala in 2016, our Kingsway and FTEC teams cheered her on as she represented Canada at the very highest level of sport”
– Jennifer Huggins
Mandy is not only a Boxing Canada Olympian, but she is a true champion in and outside of the ring. Last night I visited her coach Adrien Teodorescu in the ICU, fighting for every breath, his family at his bedside. Adrian is a legend of boxing, one of his many accolades including coaching Lennox Lewis in the 1988 Olympics. Mandy has been at his beside for 2 days straight, set up a fund for the family, and still insists that she would like to come to Kingsway on Monday.
Please take a moment to support the legacy of Adrian:
