Tokyo Olympics: Nigeria’s Ese Brume qualifies for Long Jump final

Nigeria’s Ese Brume has qualified for the final stage of the event at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

 

Brume finished fourth in Group B with a 6.76m jump to take the final spot early on Sunday morning. She had the fourth overall best Jump among the finalists.

 

Reigning World Indoor champion, Ivana Spanovic, was first in Group B with a jump of 7.00m. Current world champion Malaika Mihambo was second with a 6.98m leap. British Virgin Islands’ Chantel Malone (6.82m) finished third.

.

The 25-year-old jumped a distance of 7.17m at the Chule Vista Festival in May, to break Chioma Ajunwa’s 25-year long jump record of 7.12m. She was also the only Nigerian athlete who reached the final of her event at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, where she placed fifth with a leap of 6.81m.

 

Brume is Nigeria’s sole representative in the jumps in Tokyo since the disqualification of Ruth Usoro by the Athletics Integrity Unit.
