As the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil draws closer to its conclusion; many countries are looking to pick up the gold medals in the remaining events.

One of such countries is Nigeria who is yet to win a gold medal in this year's Olympic Games.

Nigeria's Long jump candidate for the female category ‘Ese Brume’ appears to be edging closer to picking up Gold for the country as she qualified for the Women's Long Jump final.

The 20-year old leapt a distance of 6.67m to finish third in Group B behind United States' Britney Reese and Estonia's Ksenija Balta.

Ese Brume faces a tough competition for the gold medal as she battles Germany's Malaika Mihambo, Russia's Darya Klishina, United States' Tianna Bartoletta, Estonia's Ksenija Balta, Ukraine's Maryna Bekh, Great Britain's Jazmin Sawyers, United States' Britney Reese, Germany's Sosthene Moguenara, Great Britain's Lorraine Ugen, Serbia's Ivana Spanovic and Australia's Brooke Stratton.

Ese Brume won gold in the 2014 Commonwealth Games and will hope to win the most prestigious price of them all, a gold medal at the Olympic Games.

The Women's Long Jump final is scheduled to take place at 8:15pm today.

Congratulations Ese and all the best of luck as you go for Gold!
