26 March 2014 Last updated at 11:54 GMT

Standing at 6ft 7in tall, Shakeil Waithe is one of Trinidad and Tobago's brightest stars. He now hopes to follow in the footsteps of teammate and Olympic gold medallist Keshorn Walcott.

The 18-year-old's coach discovered Shakeil's natural talent during an open trial following the success of Walcott at London 2012.

BBC Queen's Baton Relay reporter Mark Beaumont joined Waithe's training session during the baton's short stay in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Queen's baton is travelling around the nations and territories in the build up to the Games in Glasgow this summer.
