Ese Brume was born 17th January,1996 to Brume family in Ughelli Kindom,one of the Urhobo kingdoms in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.Her both parents are teachers by profession.
As a child,she picked tent in athletic games,though not so successful in her primary school,but her parents encouragement prompted her zeal and passion in doing so well by representing her secondary school in major athletic competitions.
During her secondary school,she represented Delta State at the National School Sport Festival (NSSF) in 2008,but she wasn’t serious,but came second in the long jump.This formed the beginning of her major competition.She stopped training for a while but her present coach,Mr.Kayode Yahaya who discovered she got a talent and fluent in long Jump,took her away from her parents to Benin,where he started training her.
With the strong Urhobo DNA she carried,she won her first major National title in 2012,and came second behind our very own Urhobo blood “Blessing Okagbare” in 2013 with a jump trial of 6.53m.These formed the basis of her breaking into the National stage in Nigeria.
She is a three-time African senior champion in the long Jump and holds a personal best of 7.17 m (23 ft 1 1⁄2 in),holds the African Junior record in the event and also a five-time African Junior champion in athletics.
Brume was the long jump gold medallist at the 2013 African Junior Athletics Championships, 2014 Commonwealth Games, 2014 African Senior Athletics Championships and 2015 African Junior Athletics Championships.
She was one of the most successful athletics at the 2013 African Junior Athletics Championship.She performed poorly in Eugene Oregon trial in 2014 and was at the bottom of the qualifying.Five days later,she represented Nigeria at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, becoming the only entrant for the event,after Blessing Okagbare opted to compete in the sprints.She excelled by picking couraged, clearing 6.56m to win gold in the long Jump,which she dedicated to then Governor Emmanuel Uduagha former governor of Delta State,for investing in track and field infrastructures and supporting sporting activities.
She was later placed on scholarship programme,where she studied Tourism and Hospitality Management at the prestigious Eastern Mediterranean University Famagusta,North Cyprus by kits manufacturing company “Nike”
