Ese Brume is extremely delighted with her achievement of winning Nigeria’s only medal at the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar – a bronze in the long jump event on the final day , Completesports.com reports.
Brume leapt a distance of 6.91m, her second longest career jump, to win the bronze medal behind pre-championships favourite, Germany’s Malaika Mihambo (7.30m) and USA’s Kenyattia Hackworth (6.92m).
“It means a lot for me. I’m super excited, because I have not been so strong all season because I wasn’t able to perform at bigger competitions. I cannot be more happy winning this medal,” Brume told reporters in Doha.
The 23-year-old who made the final of the event at the Olympics three years ago on her debut has now moved from 10th in 2017 in London where she jumped a mediocre 6.38m to third two years later.
She is now the second Nigerian to make the podium in the event after Blessing Okagbare leapt a distance of 6.99m to win a silver medal behind USA’s Brittney Reese (7.01m) and also the third after Okagbare and Chioma Ajunwa to make the final of the event.
