The #CLP episode this week was a knockout and we loved sitting down with 11-time National Champion, 2011 Pan Am Champion and 2016 Olympian, Mandy Bujold. Mandy was amazing and had us out to her home to talk about her 13-year boxing career, helping to pioneer female boxing both within Canada and Internationally, and what might be next for her. Mandy’s dedication and commitment to her craft is immediately obvious and we loved hearing her approach to training and competition. If you have a young athlete in your life this is the perfect episode, full of advice and inspiration for what it takes to succeed at the very highest level. Please rate and review! We love the feedback!
