Birmingham 2022: Brume Wins Gold In The Women's Long Jump Event

 Nigeria's Ese Brume has won Gold in the final of the Women’s long jump event holding at the ongoing XXII Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.


Brume who had a failed first attempt registered 6.99m, 6.81m, 6.99m and 6.96m in her 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th attempts respectively.


Her second attempt (6.99m) was good enough to set a Commonwealth Games Record surpassing Australia's Bronwyn Thompson's 6.97m set at the 2006 Melbourne Games.


However, she had other plans, jumping 7.00m in her 6th attempt to surpass her own Record with a new Games Record.


Her Compatriot, Ruth Usoro placed 6th (6.56m).


Australia's Brooke Buschkuehl (Silver - 6.95m) and Ghana's Deborah Acquah (Personal Best: Bronze - 6.94m) also scored podium finishes.
