Meanwhile, Ese Brume the second Nigerian athlete that competed in the Long Jump did not qualify for the final. Brume clocked 6.36 during the qualifying stage. Interesting her jump was increasing all through the three attempts allowed: 6.16m 6.29m and 6.36m respectively. Still, they were well below her personal best of 6.83m but at age 21, we hope to see more of her in the future.
