"I am so happy to have accomplished something so few are able to do."

Canadian world champion gold medalist Tammara Thibeault is taking some time off.

After nearly advancing into the medal round at the 2022 Tokyo Olympics, Thibeault (24-9-0, 1 KO), 25, secured the middleweight gold medal at the Women’s World Boxing Championship in Instanbul on May 20, with a split-decision (4-1) victory over Athena Bylon of Panama in the 70kg-75k final.

Thibeault won a bronze medal at the 2019 World Championships. She took to her Instagram page to thank her supporters.

Welterweight Charlie Cavanagh, 21, from Saint John, N.B., also took home a silver medal for Canada in Instanbul.

Thibeault and Cavanagh are expected to be medal threats for Canada at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
