Ese Brume picked up Nigeria’s first medal at the Athletics World Championship in Doha, winning Bronze in the Long jump event.

Brume leaped to a 6.91 mark (+0.3 wind) in her second attempt and was beaten by an inch to miss out on Silver to Ukraine’s Maryna Bekh-Romanchuk (6.92).

Meanwhile, Sports Minister, Sunday Dare has congratulated Brume for ending Nigeria’s wait for an IAAF World Championships medal after two fruitless trips to Beijing, China in 2015 and London, Great Britain in 2017. He also praised Amusan for putting up a gallant effort in the 100m hurdles after breaking 12.50 seconds three times during the championships.

“Doha. Ese Brume. Congrats and thanks for the Bronze medal. Still a champion. Also, Tobi Amusan thanks for competing with the best. Still a champion. The future is bright. Thank you for making Nigeria proud,” Dare wrote in her Twitter handle.

He said that attention will now shift to preparations for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which, he added, will not be an all-comers affair.

“Tokyo 2020: Nigeria will remain focused for Tokyo because we still have medal hopefuls. We competed well in Doha. Lessons learnt. Now a laser focus on training and technical, as we prepare for the Olympics. We will concentrate only on select sports where stats show we are strong,” he tweeted. (Brilla Sports/The Guardian)
