‘Commander’ qualifies for Tokyo 2020 Olympics

Kenya’s boxing captain Nick Okoth nicknamed as ‘Commander’ has become the first kenyan boxer to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The hit squad skipper booked the ticket after outclassing Ugandan Isaac Masembe in the mens featherweight (52-57kgs) semifinals. Nick has been out in the cold for 12 years, his last appearance was in 2008 Olympics as a featherweight after winning the 2nd AIBA African 2008 Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

He highly praised his wife, Rachel Ouko whom he decribed as his ‘favourite fan’ and elder brother (the 1998 Commonwealth Games welterweight silver medallist Absolom “Diblo” Okinyi)  for inspiring him.

Okoth will now face Zambian Everisto Mulenga today in the final .

Other Kenyan boxers Elizabeth Akinyi and Elly Ajowi were eliminated on Wednesday.
