Newly crowned World Champion Mary Spencer will be returning to Toronto, Ontario tomorrow to show off her new gold hardware.  The Windsor native was the only Canadian woman to capture a Gold medal at the Women’s World Amateur Boxing Championships held in Podolsk, Russia from September 25 – October 2.  Eight females represented Team Canada and are bringing home 1 Gold, 1 Silver, and 2 Bronze medals.  Spencer will be accompanied by her trainer, 2-Time Olympic Coach Charlie Stewart, and two of her Canadian teammates.

Ontario’s other medalist, Katie Dunn of Windsor, captured a Bronze medal in what is currently the highest form of international competition for female amateur boxing.  Dunn will be returning tonight via Detroit with her coaches Josh and Margaret Canty.  Margaret Sidoroff-Canty is a 3-Time World Champion.  Katie is scheduled to arrive at Detroit Metro Airport at 9:38pm, Monday, October 3.  She will land from New York/JFK on a Delta Airlines Flight at the McNamara Terminal.
