Ese Brume enjoyed a spectacular 2019 season as she won two major medals.

Nigeria’s Ese Brume was in action in the women’s Long Jump at the Doha Diamond League on Friday, and it was her first outing this season as she finished 2nd, competing at the stadium where she won the Bronze medal at the 2019 World Championships.

With placements being decided in the final round, Brume jumped a last round mark of 6.68m (+0.4m/s), but she had jumped a Season’s Best (SB) of 6.71m (+0.4) earlier in the 4th round of the competition.

Brume finished in 2nd place behind the eventual winner and World Silver medallist Maryna Bekh-Romanchuk who saved her best for last, breaking sand to leap to an SB of 6.91m (+0.6).

Sweden’s Khaddi Sagnia who was the top seed going into the contest, jumped 6.85m (+0.2) in the 2nd round and 6.55m (+0.3) in the last round, thereby settling for 3rd place in the competition.

Athletics is a special shade of life for me, and my confidence has received a boost since I started out covering the sport from the stands of my home, and now as a Junior Sportswriter with Making of Champions - an opportunity to get better at what I do.
