Despite failing to qualify through the African qualifiers in Senegal earlier this year, Ugandan boxer Isaac Masembe still has his eyes set on an Olympic slot.
The featherweight boxer trains extra hours to stay in shape for the global qualifiers in France.
The stringent regulations by the government in the fight against COVID-19 have not slowed down boxer Isaac Masembe as he chases his dream of featuring in the Olympics.
Masembe, who lost to Ghanian Samuel Takyi in his box off in Senegal says the postponement of the global qualifiers by a year will allow him time to train better.
But like several other athletes, his worry is the finances to keep him in training for the extra year.
As the king of his weight division in local rings, Isaac Masembe’s dream now is to conquer the continent and the world.
Whether he will pass the final audition for a slot in the next year Olympics in the Japanese capital Tokyo, only time can tell, but the fighter isn’t any short of confidence.
