The 1998 Commonwealth games were held in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. Kenya had been Commonwealth games champions in 1982, 1990 and 1994. They would have been champions in 1996 as well had the country not boycotted the games along with other African nations. However 1998 marked the first time in decades that Kenya did not win a gold medal at the Commonwealth games, signaling the slow but steady decline of Kenya’s boxing fortunes.
Kenya won two silver medals via Moses Kinyua and Absalom Okoth and one bronze medal via Samuel Odindo
