Budapest 2023: Brume misses long jump podium finish

Nigeria’s long jumper, Ese Brume, recorded a season’s best of 6.84m but it was not enough to get her to the podium as she finished fourth in the women’s long jump of the ongoing World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Serbia’s Ivana Vuleta won the event with a world lead jump of 7.14m followed by Tara Davis-Woodhall of the United States in second place with a mark of 6.91m while Romania’s Alina Rotaru-Kottmann finished third with a 6.88m mark.

Rotaru-Kottmann waited till the final round to push Brume out of medal contention to 4th place, jumping 6.88m, 4cm longer than Brume to snatch the bronze.

Brume produced an impressive 6.80m in her first attempt and improved it to 6.84m in her second attempt to stay in contention for a medal but she dropped 6.84m, 6.53m, 6.70m and 6.59m in her third, fourth, fifth and sixth attempts respectively.505.7K

Brume’s fourth-place finish at this year’s competition is the only time she failed to win a medal for Nigeria at a major championship since 2018.

Brume has been one of the country’s top performers in a decade winning a bronze medal at the 2019 World Championships before upgrading it to a silver last year in Oregon.

She also has four African titles, two gold medals from the Commonwealth Games and a bronze from the Tokyo Olympics.
