Meanwhile, Brume won the title in 2019 in the Moroccan city of Rabat and continued her fine form five years later in Ghana, Complete Sports reported.

Still on Thursday, Burkina Faso’s Koala Marthe clinched bronze. But it was a disappointing night for Nigeria’s Ruth Usoro who finished fourth with a jump of 6.62m.

A new Olympic Movement @MakingOfChamps confirmed the development in a post shared on its X account on Thursday night.

@MakingOfChamps tweeted:

“Ese Brume has won GOLD in the women’s Long Jump at the African Games, flying to a first-round 6.92m to nail the win and defend her title from 2019.

“What an international debut for a relatively unknown Prestina Ochonogor who claimed Bronze, landing 6.67m! Ochonogor only officially surpassed 6.00m this year and is now an African Games Bronze medallist.
