Olympic Medalist, Ese Brume, Dedicates Medal to Bishop Oyedepo

Earlier today, Nigerian athlete, Ese Brume, won the country’s first medal at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics. She finished with a bronze medal and dedicated it to the president of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, her family, and her coach, Kayode Gaya who assisted her to overcome her injury issues.

While speaking to journalists after she bagged the bronze medal, the 25 year old emphasized on how excited she was and appreciated God for seeing her through. In her words,

“This medal means a lot to me. It doesn’t matter the colour. First, I dedicate it to Bishop Oyedepo and I plan to decorate him with the medal later. I’m super excited that I made it to the top three at the Olympics. Honestly, I can’t contend with my joy." 

"I have never seen myself in worse situations because I was injured. But my coach kept pushing and my trust in God renewed my energy. When I break the African record, my injury was still fresh. It spurred me. And here I am today grateful to God and all those he used to make me an Olympic medallist,'' the Delta state born athlete added.

Brume made the third-best jump in the final round of the women's long jump event as she leapt 6.97meters. Germany’s Malaika Mihambo won the gold medal while United States' Britney Reese won the silver medal.
