19

Kenya’s Christine Ongare brushed off Uganda’s Catherine Nanziri at the Africa Boxing Olympics qualifiers in Dakar, Senegal on Saturday, February 29 to book her place at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Ongare, who became a mom at the tender age of 12, out-boxed the skilful Ugandan, winning eventually by unanimous points decision.

The commonwealth bronze-medalist beat the Ugandan in the Box-Off Women’s Flyweight category to join Niko Okoth, the other Kenyan boxer who has qualified for the Olympic Games.
