Ese Brume's Historic Bronze Medal in Xiamen Diamond League
Nigerian long-jump star Ese Brume claims a well-deserved bronze medal at the Xiamen Diamond League, setting a new season best. This historic achievement makes her the first Nigerian field-event athlete to qualify for the Diamond League athletics series final.

Lagos, September 4th - Nigerian long-jump star Ese Brume has quickly bounced back from her disappointment at the 2023 World Athletics Championships in Budapest, where she narrowly missed a medal, by claiming a well-deserved bronze medal at the Xiamen Diamond League in China.

In Budapest, Brume, who had been a top medal hope for Nigeria, finished fourth despite achieving a season's best jump of 6.84 meters.

However, in China's Xiamen Diamond League, she outperformed herself by leaping to a distance of 6.71 meters (-0.6), securing the third position and setting a new season best. This outstanding achievement not only marks a historical moment for Brume but also for Nigeria as she becomes the first Nigerian field-event athlete to qualify for the Diamond League athletics series final.

Brume's determination and talent shone through in Xiamen, bringing her accolades and recognition on the world stage. The gold in the event was won by World Champion Ivana Vuleta from Serbia, who achieved a 6.88m jump, while Marthe Koala from Burkina Faso took the silver with a 6.79m jump.

By earning six valuable points, Brume's total point tally rose to 16, securing her spot among the top six athletes who will compete in the final event to be held in Oregon, USA in two weeks' time. This accomplishment marks a significant milestone for Nigeria as, for the first time, the country will have two athletes (Brume and Amusan) in the final of the Diamond League in the same year.

Ese Brume is determined to claim the Diamond League trophy and become the second Nigerian to achieve this feat in a field event. Her dedication, hard work, and talent have not gone unnoticed as she climbed the ranks in the latest World Athletics long jump rankings. Brume now sits in the 5th position, a stark improvement from her previous 223rd position before the Budapest championship. This incredible ascent establishes her as the 142nd best overall women's athlete in the world.

As Brume sets her sights on victory in the Diamond League finals, her captivating performance in Xiamen has further solidified her status as one of Nigeria's top athletes. With her relentless pursuit of excellence, she continues to inspire athletes across the nation and beyond.

For Nigeria, Brume's historic achievement not only showcases the country's athletic prowess but also highlights the potential for further success in the field of athletics. The future looks promising as the nation supports and nurtures talented individuals like Ese Brume, who continue to make a mark on the world stage.
