Ese Brume Sets New Commonwealth Record In Women’s Long Jump


Ese Brume has won gold for Nigeria in the women’s long jump at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Brume put herself in a commanding position for the gold medal after her fourth attempt gave her a new Commonwealth Games record of 6.99m.

The 26-year-old broke the Games record again a few minutes later with her last attempt, after a leap of 7.00m to put her way ahead to clinch Nigeria’s last gold of Day 10.

Brume had a no jump on her first attempt but bounced back right away to jump 6.99m to take the lead in the final and set a new Games Record.


Brume has been arguably Nigeria’s most consistent athlete over the past four years.

She burst onto the scene by winning gold as an 18-year-old at the 2014 commonwealth games in Glasgow but could not defend her title four years ago in the Gold Coast in Australia.

However, since then, She has been on a consistent run, winning bronze at the World Athletics Championships in Doha in 2019. She followed that up by winning another bronze at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

She took it up a notch higher by winning silver at the World indoors in March before matching the feat on the biggest athletics stage in Eugene, Oregon two weeks ago.
