Brume, who won bronze at the 2019 World Championships in Doha, is regarded as one of Nigeria’s strong medal prospects in Tokyo.

She was also the only Nigerian athlete who reached the final of her event at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, where she placed fifth with a leap of 6.81m.
In Group A, Americans Brittney Reese (6.86m) and Tara Davis (6.85m) finished first and second, with Swede Khaddi Sagnia (6.76m) and Great Britain's Abigail Irozuru (6.75m) also qualifying in third and fourth places.
