Nigerian Athlete Ese Brume claimed a silver medal at the World Athletics Championship in Oregon, USA at the Women's Long jump event on Monday morning.

Brume finished second behind German Malaika Mihambo who claimed her second successive World Championship Gold medal with a 7.12m finish.

Brume's leap ended at 7.02m and the silver was an improvement for her, who claimed Bronze last time out.

This time Brazilian Leticia Oro Melo claimed Bronze with a 6.89m finish.

Mihambo will remain Brume's barrier from a Gold Medal finish given that at the Tokyo Olympics, she beat Brume to the Gold.

Brume follows Tobi Amusa who finished first in the 100m hurdle race with a gold medal.

These victories gain two medals for Nigeria -- one Gold, one silver.
