Two Special Baton Holder from Goldfields Andrew Kuipers

Kalgoorlie Boulder youngster Imogen Kuipers and Kambalda Stalwart Marg Donkin have been selected as Queens Baton Relay Holders as the Baton makes its way through Western Australia. 

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has revealed the list of approximately 3,800 Australians who will carry the Queen’s Baton on its 100-day journey across the nation in the lead-up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

The Premier said the list of names, selected through a community nomination program, is a great reflection of Australia.

“The lists of names have been compiled by judging panels in each state and territory, allowing local knowledge to play the greatest possible role in the selection process,” the Premier said.

“The batonbearers recognise the achievements and aspirations of Australians from all walks of life, from ambitious 10-year-olds to humble volunteers and well-known Australians from a variety of fields.

“Collectively, our batonbearers will take more than a million steps through every state and territory, sharing the excitement of GC2018 with regional and remote communities.”
