UK-based Zimbabwean Laura Nyahuye designs 2022 Commonwealth Games baton. United Kingdom-based Zimbabwean Laura Nyahuye has designed the 2022 Commonwealth Games Baton that will carry the Queen’s message to athletes across the 72-member nations in a 269-day journey.

The journey begins on October 7 with Commonwealth Games Federation President Dame Louise Martin set to join Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace for the grand start. Nyahuye, who is based in Coventry and is the chief executive officer of Maokwo, a not-for-profit company that promotes minorities through art said working on the design is “an intense yet enlightening process”.

Speaking to insidethegames.biz, Nyahuye said: My prayer is the baton creates a rhythmic heartbeat of peace, love, and a hunger to connect beyond our skin tones and ethnicities.

According to insidethegames.biz, the baton features a 360-degree camera, heart-rate monitors, atmospheric sensors and LED lighting, which changes each time the baton is exchanged by two people.

The baton has been deliberately cast in non-precious metals, copper, aluminium and brass, to represent the gold, silver and bronze medals at the Games themselves. It was made using the traditional method of lost wax casting.
