After finishing third in the women’s long jump event, Brume has won Nigeria’s first medal in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Brume leaped 6.97 meters to claim bronze behind second-placed Brittany Reece of the United States and gold medallist Malaika Mihambo of Germany.

It is Nigeria’s first track and field medal at the Olympics since 2008 when Blessing Okagbare won a silver medal in Beijing. It also makes the long jump the first individual event to give Nigeria three medals at the Olympics with Chioma Ajunwa’s gold at the Atlanta ‘96 Olympics topping Okagbare’s silver from 2008 and Brume’s bronze. Brume also joins Okagbare and Glory Alozie as the only Nigerians to win individual medals at both the World Athletics Championships and the Olympics. Congratulations Brume! You did it!🥉🇳🇬
