Ese Brume has claimed Nigeria’s first bronze medal at the ongoing Tokyo Olympic Games in the Long Jump event.
Brume leaped 6.97 metres with her very first jump to claim bronze behind second-placed Brittany Reece of the United States and gold medallist Malaika Mihambo of Germany.

It is Nigeria’s first track and field medal at the Olympics since 2008 when Okagbare won a silver medal in Beijing.
It also makes the long jump the first individual event to give Nigeria three medals at the Olympics with Chioma Ajunwa’s gold at the Atlanta ‘96 Olympics topping Okagbare’s silver from 2008 and Brume’s bronze.
Oya ooo. Make Una pack am come. We have been starved for too long. Tak you, tak you Ese Brume. May Jehovah God continue bless you Ese Brume n others mightily and continue to press konck for those criminal sport administrators fat heads. This bronze make my body feeeel cooolee.
With the world lead jump she achieved earlier this year in the United States, I was expecting Ese to Nick the Gold but you know with the complains from most Nigerian Athletes sighting poor management we should manage this as a consolation and not ask for more.
Lol. But we’re related to Oliver Twist. We must “ask for more.”
While we thank Brume for coming to the rescue, we must acknowledge that a paltry bronze medal is not enough ROI (return on investment) for the huge financial outlay on this Olympics.
Kanga if you watched the match you’ll notice she wanted the Gold. The German girl won with her last Jumb and the American equaled Ese’s 6.97 after her 3rd attempt but with farther distance from the red caution gave her silver and Ese’s last Jumb of 6.90 was not Enough to comeback after leading the first two rounds. She will dominate long jump with proper management because she broke 7.15 with an injury, I’m sure by the time she’s fitter she will win a lot of Gold for Nigeria.
