Ese Brume Wins Gold For Nigeria At The Commonwealth Games

Long jumper Ese Brume has added another gold medal to Team Nigeria’s collection at the ongoing Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

She did it in style, setting a new Games Record of 7.00m to reclaim the title she won in Glasgow, Scotland, eight years ago.

Ese, a World Athletics Championships silver medalist, was not in Gold Coast, Australia, four years ago to defend her title, but she has done so now in Birmingham.

The previous Games Record for the Women’s Long Jump was 6.97m, set in 2006 by Australia’s Bronwyn Thompson on home soil in Melbourne.

Team Nigeria’s total haul of 12 gold medals, including Brume’s gold medal, is the best the country has ever secured since participating in the Commonwealth Games.

Tobi Amusan, Ese’s compatriot, won gold in the 100M Hurdle earlier today, also in spectacular fashion, setting a new Games Record.
