The 288-day Queen’s Baton Relay, a tradition of the Commonwealth Games, began the 148th day of the run in Barbados yesterday, with local athletes taking the baton from Government House, past cheering schools and the Barbados Community College, all the way to the Olympic Centre at the Garfield Sobers complex.
National Hero Sir Garfield Sobers along with long-standing international athletics administrator Austin Sealy stood at the entrance to their Highgate Park home district to greet runners and cyclist Javed Mounter seen here holding the baton aloft with Sir Garry.
The baton bears the message which will be read by Queen Elizabeth at the official opening of the games on July 23. (GC) (Picture by Sandy PItt.)
