Episode 7 of 10

Duration: 26 minutes

As the Queen's Baton Relay continues around 70 nations and territories of the Commonwealth, BBC One Scotland covers the stories of the athletes and communities en route. In this episode, presenter Mark Beaumont travels with the baton from Trinidad and Tobago through to Jamaica, meeting athletic hopefuls and finding out more about the places they come from. Mark will be speaking to Trinidad and Tobago's javelin hopeful, 18-year-old Shakeil Waithe, who hopes to follow in the footsteps of teammate and Olympic gold medallist Keshorn Walcott. He will also be on island of Montserrat in the Caribbean where the country continues to recover from a volcanic eruption nearly 20 years ago, and chats to track athletes who are playing their own part in that recovery. In Jamaica, Mark meets Shelly-Ann Pryce, the women's Olympic 100m and World 100m and 200m champion.
