- Brian Agina went missing after taking part in the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games

- Australian authorities are pursuing the matter

- The Ministry of Sports is yet to give an official statement on Agina's disappearance

- The boxer lost to Syed Muhammad in the round of 16

A Kenyan boxer who represented the country in the just concluded 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia has gone missing.

Reports reaching TUKO.co.ke indicate that Brian Agina, who was bundled out of the competition in the round of 16 by Pakistan's Syed Muhammad Asif, disappeared after the curtains fell on this year's edition of the Commonwealth games on Sunday, April 15.

The Ministry of Sports is yet to give a statement on Agina, but sources privy to the teenager's disappearance divulged to the media that Australian police are pursuing the matter in an effort to establish the boxer's whereabouts.

Despite failing to win a medal, the 18-year old Mombasa-based flyweight wrote his name in the Kenyan national boxing team's magnificent history when he climbed onto the ring to take on hardened and more experienced boxers.

He started his boxing career at the tender age of 13 under coach Paul Mathenge at Mary Cliff Hall in Tudor, Mombasa.

Female boxer Christine Ongare won Kenya's only Boxing Medal at the Gold Coast, after bagging a bronze medal.
