Olympics 2021: Ese Brume Dedicates Bronze Medal To Bishop Oy

Ese Brume

Olympics 2021 Bronze medalist, Ese Brume has dedicated her achievement to David Oyedepo, founder and presiding Bishop of Winners’ Chapel International.

Brume leapt to her first Olympic medal with a jump of 6.97m on Monday.

Germany’s Malaika Mihambo took Gold while Britney Reese of the USA got the Silver.

Vanguard's journalist in Tokyo, Tony Ubani, quotes Brume as saying at the Mixed zone of the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, Japan, that she was dedicating her first Olympic medal to Bishop Oyedepo, her coach Kayode Gaya and her family.

“This medal means a lot to me. It doesn’t matter the colour. First I dedicate it to Bishop Oyedepo and I plan to decorate him with the medal later," she said amidst sobs and wiping her tears.

“I’m super excited that I made it to the top three at the Olympics. Honestly, I can’t contend with my joy.

"I have never seen myself in worse situations because I was injured. But my coach kept pushing and my trust in God renewed my energy. When I break the African record, my injury was still fresh. It spurred me. And here I am today grateful to God and all those he used to make me an Olympic medallist."
