Letter: St. Davids boxer made Canada and NOTL proud
Letter to the editor. File

Dear editor:

Kudos on behalf of the community to St. Davids boxer Mckenzie Wright on her brave and commendable attempt to qualify in Bangkok, Thailand for the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics.

Following two earlier victories, including a unanimous win over Aldana Lopez of Argentina, a medallist in the 2022 Women’s World Boxing Championship, Wright was defeated at the 11th hour by Fatima Herrera of Mexico in her final qualifying attempt.

As a lifelong fan of this sport, aptly named by British sportswriter Pierce Egan back in 1813 as “the Sweet Science,” I foresee a bright future for our local hero.

Mckenzie, you represented Canada and Niagara-on-the-Lake with pride and in our eyes you are a winner.

Samuel Young
