Injury stops Ese Brume from Diamond League history
Posted : 19 September 2023
Kayode Yahaya, Ese Brume's coach, disclosed that an unexpected injury prevented the Nigerian long jumper from clinching the Diamond League final title in Oregon.
Brume, a world silver medalist, had a promising jump of 6.85m but was matched by Serbia's Ivana Vuleta, who went on to win based on countback.
Yahaya believes that had Brume been able to make her sixth jump, she could have taken the title.
The athlete was also aiming to become the first Nigerian field eventer to win a Diamond League title, a goal that remains unfulfilled due to the injury.
