August 07, 2022

Long Jumper Ese Brume broke the Commonwealth Games record to win Team Nigeria’s 12th gold medal at the ongoing event in Birmingham making it the best outing for Nigeria in the competition’s history. Team Nigeria had won 11 Gold Medals at Auckland ‘90.

Brume put herself in a commanding position for the gold medal after her fourth attempt gave her a new Commonwealth Games record of 6.99m.

The 26-year-old broke the Games record again a few minutes later with her last attempt, after a leap of 7.00m to put her way ahead to clinch Nigeria’s final and 12th gold on Day 10.
