Tokyo Olympics: Ese Brume Gets Nigeria First Medal

Nigeria has finally gotten a medal at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.

Gatekeepers News reports that Ese Brume has secured Bronze for Nigeria with a 6.97m jump in the women’s long jump event at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics.

Brume who has ruled the Africa scene since 2014, got the first medal for Nigeria in Japan on Tuesday.

She has proven her consistency after winning the Commonwealth Champion in 2014, bagging 5th place at Rio Olympics in 2016, winning the World Champs Bronze medal in 2019, and now an Olympics Bronze medal in 2021.

Brume has, therefore, joined the league of women who won medals for Nigeria. Her win followed Chioma Ajunwa gold at Atlanta ‘96 and Blessing Okagbare silver in 2008.

She also joins both women as the only Nigerians to win individual World Championships & Olympic medals.

Meanwhile, Nigerians woke up to another good news as Divine Oduduru who was earlier disqualified in the 100m heats for a false start, returns for the 200m.

Odururu who made the semifinal at Rio 2016, has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics semis of the 200m in a time of 20.36s.
