Tokyo Olympics: Long Jumper Ese Brume Wins First Medal For Nigeria

Published

on

Ese Brume has won the first medal for Nigeria at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

She won bronze in women’s long jump.

Germany’s Malaika Mihambo soared to gold in the women’s long jump, snatching victory from former champion Brittney Reese with her last leap of the competition.

Mihambo was lying in the bronze medal position ahead of her final jump, but powered down the runway to register a season-best jump of 7.00 metres.

That left 2012 Olympic champion Reese who had led the competition with a best jump of 6.97m with one final attempt to reclaim the lead.

But the American could only manage 6.84 with her last leap to settle for silver.
