Team Nigeria now sits 64th on the medals table as the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan enters Day 11.

Ese Brume won the country’s first medal, claiming bronze in the long jump.

The 25-year-old recorded a jump of 6.97m in the final to finish behind America’s Brittney Reese and Malaika Mihambo of Germany.

Blessing Obodururu then gave Nigeria a silver medal in the women’s freestyle 68kg event on Tuesday.

She lost 1-4 in the final to Tamyra Mensah-Stock of the U.S, who had defeated her three times earlier.
