Andrew Moloney Carries Queens Baton
The Queen’s Baton Relay is counting down the days until the start of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
In Australia, the Queen’s Baton will traverse 40,000km, travelling through every state and territory for 100 days and will be carried by more than 1800 baton bearers in Queensland.
The Relay started on Commonwealth Day, Monday 13 March 2017, at Buckingham Palace when Her Majesty placed her message inside of the Baton. It has already been passed between thousands of people for 288 days across Africa, the Caribbean, the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania, building excitement for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
The distinctive design of the Queen’s Baton captures the boundless energy of the Gold Coast.
In form and inspiration, the Queen’s Baton is a symbol of our past, present and future.
Once it arrives on the Gold Coast for the XXI Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony on 4 April 2018, the HRH The Prince of Wales will remove Her Majesty’s message from the Baton and read it aloud to declare the Games open.
Our very own WBA Oceania Super Flyweight champ Andrew Moloney had the distinct privilege of carrying the baton along Price St, Nerang.
Another great milestone in this young champions life.
