National Sports Festival: Ese Brume Sets New Long Jump Record

Reigning African champion, Ese Brume, has leapt to a new Championship record in the Women’s Long Jump event at the ongoing National Sports Festival in Abuja.

The Nigerian leap-queen, who is competing for Team Delta, made a sensational jump of 6.62m on Tuesday, to win the gold medal, while also smashing the former record of 6.39m held by Chinedu Udozor.

Brume also emerged the champion at the last African Senior Athletics Championships staged in Asaba. She said she is very excited to have won the gold medal for her state.

I am excited and happy, I am grateful to God and my coaches who have brought me this far. I am so grateful to them all… I try to also put in my best even though it was off season for me. I am thankful to God because it is all by His Grace.”
