Nigerian Athlete, Ese Brume won silver in the womens long jump at the World Indoor Championships in Belgrade.

Ese Brume won Silver with her 6.85m leap at the 2022 IAAF World Indoor Championships.

On the final day of the 2022 IAAF World Indoor Championships, long jump athlete Ese Brume flew the Nigerian flag high as she came in second behind Serbian jumper Ivana Vuleta.

Brume, who hails from Delta state, set a record personal best in Belgrade, jumping an impressive 6.85 meters – a distance only surpassed by Vuelta at 7.06 meters.
