National boxer's Olympic dream vanishes

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Denise Walters

Jamaican middleweight boxer Jonathan Hanson is not going down without a fight in trying to realize his Olympic dream. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Boxing Task Force has cancelled the last chance Olympic qualifier, he was scheduled for, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But, Hanson is questioning the decision as other qualifying tournaments will go ahead. The Olympic boxing qualifier for Tokyo was due to take place in Paris this June.
