Spirits undamped at Queen’s Baton Relay walk

The heavy downpour did not dampen the spirit to celebrate the arrival of the Queen’s Baton in Brunei Darussalam yesterday morning, during ‘The Queen’s Baton Relay (QBR) Walk and Breakfast’ event jointly organised by the British High Commission in Brunei Darussalam, the Brunei Darussalam National Olympic Council (BDNOC) and the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS).

The QBR is a traditional curtain raiser for the Commonwealth Games. The relay began on October 7, 2021, with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II placing her message to the Commonwealth into the Baton.

The baton is now on its 264-day long journey to every corner of the Commonwealth. The Queen’s Baton landed in the Sultanate on the 111th day of its journey.
