School pupils from across Aberdeen celebrated the tour of the Queen’s Baton Relay for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
The Gold Coast in Australia will host the games, which will see nations from around the world compete in a whole host of events.
Aberdeen Sports Village (ASV) was the venue yesterday for the relay which will see the baton tour around Scotland for five days, a much shorter tour than the 42 days it travelled for the Games in Glasgow.
The pupils participated in One Big Sports Day of Commonwealth-themed activities, including basketball, badminton, netball, athletics, touch rugby, table tennis, football, hockey, weight lifting and mountain biking.
The day also incorporated an Australian high tea.
Scotland’s 2014 Commonwealth wrestling medalwinner Viorel Etko, from Oldmeldrum, was on hand to pass the baton to youngsters.
He won the nation’s first wrestling medal since 1994.
Duncan Sinclair, CEO of ASV, said: “ASV is dedicated to offering sporting opportunities for everyone, helping people achieve their very best, so we were delighted to be a part of this exciting event warm-up to the Commonwealth Games.”
