Interestingly, Brume, a bronze medalist at the Doha 2019 World Championships and a Silver medal winner in Oregon last year, was gearing up to claim the bronze and become the first Nigerian to win three consecutive medals at the World Championships.

However, she was denied that historic moment by Romania’s Alina Rotaru-Kottmann, who saved her best for last with a leap of 6.88m to leapfrog Brume to claim the bronze medal.
