Tokyo Olympics: I will wear my medal on Oyedepo – Ese Brume

Ese Brume

Ese Brume, who has won Nigeria’s first medal at the ongoing Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, has revealed she plans to wear her bronze medal on Bishop David Oyedepo, the general overseer of Living Faith Church Worldwide.

Brume won the medal in the women’s long jump event in the early hours of Tuesday.

“I plan to go to Canaan-Land to wear it (Bronze medal) on Bishop David Oyedepo,” She told Making of Champions.

The Nigerian Olympian leapt 6.97 metres with her very first jump to claim bronze.

Brume finished behind second-placed Brittany Reese of the United States and gold medallist Malaika Mihambo of Germany.

She has joined Blessing Okagbare and Glory Alozie as the only Nigerians to win individual medals at both the Worlds championship and the Olympics.

Nigeria remains in high hopes of clinching a gold medal in the women’s wrestling final with the qualification of Blessing Oborududu on Monday.

Oborududu defeated London 2012 bronze medallist, Battsetseg Soronzonbold of Mongolia, 7-2, in the second semifinal of the women 68kg freestyle.

The Nigerian wrestler will face Tamyra Stock Mensah of the United States in the gold medal fight later on Tuesday.
