Ese Brume Wins Gold Medal For Nigeria At Commonwealth Games 2022

Ese Brume Wins Gold Medal For Nigeria At Commonwealth Games

Nigerian athlete Ese Brume claimed a gold medal at the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022 to take the country's tally to 13.

Team Nigeria at the competition have broken the record held by the 1994 set of Athletes from Nigeria (11 gold medals).

Brume after coming under early pressure pulled up two records -- jumping 7.00m to reclaim her Commonwealth Games crown.

She added no jump, 6.99m, 6.81m, 6.99m, and 6.96m in her subsequent jumps but none of her opponents could match or surpass her thereby securing gold with a jump to spare.

However, on her very last attempt, Brume jumped seven meters for another Games Record to become the first woman to jump that far in the history of the Commonwealth Games.


Brume has been arguably Nigeria’s most consistent athlete over the past four years.

She first got the limelight by winning gold as an 18-year-old at the 2014 commonwealth games in Glasgow but could not defend her title four years ago on the Gold Coast in Australia.

However, since then, She has been on a consistent run, winning bronze at the World Athletics Championships in Doha in 2019. She followed that up by winning another bronze at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

She took it up a notch higher by winning silver at the World indoors in March before matching the feat on the biggest athletics stage in Eugene, Oregon two weeks ago.
