Ese Brume becomes the first Long Jumper, male or female, to win four titles in the history of the African Athletics Championships, extending her dominance on the continent to a decade since winning her maiden title at the 2014 edition in Marrakech.


The African Record Holder made history in 2018 when she became the first to win three consecutive titles in the Long jump and was aiming for a fourth title after missing the 2022 edition, and she ultimately delivered.


The African Record holder was trailing defending champion Marthe Koala until her last attempt when she soared to a distance of 6.73m to reclaim her fourth unprecedented GOLD, narrowly displacing Koala by 1cm as the Burkinabe recorded a 6.72m. Danielle Norte got Bronze in 6.44m.


The second Nigerian entered for the event, Prestina Ochonogor placed 4th via countbacks with a mark of 6.28m, while Esraa Ewis was 5th in 6.28m as well. Brume and Ochonogor completed a 1-3 punch for Nigeria at the African Games in March.
