Ese Brume has won the first medal
Ese Brume has won the first medal for Nigeria at the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympics. She won bronze in women’s long jump.
Germany’s Malaika Mihambo soared to gold in the women’s long jump, snatching victory from former champion Brittney Reese with her last leap of the competition.
Mihambo was lying in the bronze medal position ahead of her final jump, but powered down the runway to register a season-best jump of 7.00 metres.
