Ese Brume has put Nigeria on the medals table, leaping 6.97m to grab the bronze medal in the long jump event in Tokyo Olympics.
The 25-year-old came in third to the German winner Malaika Mihambo who jumped 7 meters.
American Brittney Reese grabbed the silver, although had the same jump with Brume.
The Ughelli-born Brume had his bronze in her first attempt.
She never outjumped the same level, in the other five attempts, although she holds a personal best of 7.17m
Brume, a three-time African senior champion has offered some relief for Team Nigeria that they would not return home empty-handed.
All eyes are now on Blessing Oborodudu, who is expected to bring in silver or gold in the Women’s freestyle 68kg wrestling contest with American T.M. Stock Mensah.
