2018 Commonwealth bronze medalist Christine Ongare says she is determined to go a notch higher and lay claim to either gold or silver at the forthcoming Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games slated for July. Ongare, 28, made history as the first Kenyan woman to win a Commonwealth Games medal in boxing during the Gold Coast championship. We returned to camp after the IBA World Women's Boxing Championships in Istanbul Turkey to prepare for the Commonwealth Games. “I'm so certain if I had been as prepared for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games as I am today, I would have come back with a gold or a silver medal,” Ongare said. A month later, she spearheaded Kenya's medal hunt at the World Women's Boxing Championships in Istanbul, Turkey in May.
