Canada's Parent earns boxing bronze, with more to come in Commonwealth Games ring
Canadian boxer Marie-jeanne Parent lost her semifinal Wednesday but will leave the Commonwealth Games with a bronze medal.
And Canada will earn five more medals in the boxing ring, with only the colour to be decided.
Parent lost a 4-1 decision to England's Sandy Ryan in the 69-kilogram division.
The 22-year-old from Quebec City was the last athlete named to the team, summoned a little more than a month before the games when Mandy Bujold withdrew.
Also Wednesday, Caroline Veyre of Montreal was stopped by Nigeria's Yetunde Odunga in the 60-kilogram quarterfinal.
The losses were the first for Canada at the boxing meet.
In the last fight of the night, Montreal's Harley-david O'reilly won by walkover over Cameroon's Ulrich Rodrigue Yombo in the men's 81-kilogram quarterfinal.
He will be joined in the semifinals by Sabrina Aubin of St-jean, Que., (57 kilograms), Montreal's Tammara Thibeault (75 kilograms), Eric Basran of Vancouver (56 kilograms) and Thomas Blumenfeld of Montreal (64 kilograms).
