After 12 good days of being medal-less, the name of the country got recorded in the list of countries that have won at least a medal in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics as Ese Brume with an incredible performance in the women's long jump to secure her country's first medal at #Tokyo2020.



Ese Brume won Bronze in the Long Jump with 6.97m. Germany's Malaika Mihambo clinches GOLD with 7.00m, USA's Brittney Reese with 6.97m for Silver distance on countback.

Congrats to her, and Nigeria.
