STORY: The Queen’s Baton for 2018 Commonwealth Games began its five-day Indian leg of the global journey from the Taj Mahal city of Agra on Wednesday (October 04).

The sports minister of India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh said arrival of the baton in the city has sounded the bugle for the games and further motivated sportspersons in their preparation for the games.

The baton has made its 51st stop in India as part of its 388-day long tour, which would eventually cover a distance of 230,000 km through 70 countries.

The baton arrived in India’s capital New Delhi city on Tuesday (October 03). It began its journey from the Buckingham Palace in London in March and is scheduled to arrive in Australia’s eastern Gold Coast city 100 days prior to beginning of the 21st Commonwealth Games on April 4, 2018.
