Tokyo 2020 long jump bronze winner, Ese Brume has revealed her plans to wear her medal on Founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide Bishop David Oyedepo.

On Tuesday morning, August 3, Brume secured Nigeria’s first medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after she leaped 6.97 metres with her very first jump to claim bronze behind second-placed Brittany Reece of the United States and gold medallist Malaika Mihambo of Germany.

Shortly after winning the bronze, the 25-year-old said: “I plan to go to Canaan-Land to wear it (Bronze medal) on my Father Bishop David Oyedepo.”

“I’m excited and grateful to God. I’m super happy that I was able to make the top three. I’ll say I’m not the best athlete but I’m grateful to God for bringing me this far. I can’t contain my joy no matter the colour of the medal,” she added.

Brume dedicated her medal to “God Almighty, who has been my backbone and brought me to the top. I also want to dedicate the medal to my Father Bishop David Oyedepo, my family, as well as my coach and those that were here but could not compete.

“It has been a great season for me right from April when I was injured but I never settled for less no matter the challenges. I keep on pushing and my coach keeps telling me that Ese you can do it. It is not all about the training but the faith I have in God,” Brume said.
