The Uganda National Boxing Team failed to secure Olympic Games slots through the ongoing World Paris Olympic Games qualifiers, in Busto Arsizio, Italy. 

All four boxers who represented the country have now been eliminated, with the team captain, Joshua Tukamuhebwa, being the last to exit the competition. 

This is the second unsuccessful attempt by the Bombers to secure slots for the 2024 Paris Summer Games.

Their first attempt during the continental qualifiers held in Dakar, Senegal, also ended in disappointment last year where all the six boxers were eliminated. 

The ongoing competition represented Uganda’s second-to-last opportunity for the four-boxer team to secure at least one of the 49 qualification slots for the Summer Olympic Games in Paris.

Their last chance will be in Bangkok, Thailand, from May 23 to June 3.
