Athlete Ese Brume

Long jumper Ese Brume lost her luggage on her way to Italy to compete at the annual Palio Citta meet in Rovereto, Italy.

Brume, 26, revealed on Instagram before the competition on August 31 that her sponsor Adidas intervened by providing her with another set of sports kits.

“Adidas came through for me after losing my luggage on my way to compete in Italy,” she wrote.

Brume came third in the contest, jumping a mark of 6.53m on her fifth attempt.

Milicia Gardasevic won the event, leaping a mark of 6.78m, while Jasmine Sawyers jumped 6.73m to secure second spot.

It was Brume’s first action back on the field since reclaiming the Commonwealth Games title in Birmingham.

The Delta indigene will be in action on Friday, September 2 in the women’s long jump event at the 2022 Brussels Diamond League.

Brume who has the best mark in the field, will be up against Heptathlete, Nafisatou Thiam and Quanesha Burks.
