Recall, Nigeria’s Ese Brume took the bronze medal with a best jump of 6.97m.
The 25-year-old Brume won bronze at the 2019 World Championships in Doha.
Having jumped a distance of 7.17m at the Chule Vista Festival in California in May, Ese had shattered Chioma Ajunwa’s 25-year long jump record of 7.12m.
Brume’s jump was the World Lead going into the Olympics.
She was the only Nigerian athlete who reached the final of her event at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, where she placed fifth with a leap of 6.81m.
