Posted by Robin Surgeoner on Jul 25 2022 at 04:49AM PDT

Congratulations to our 4 swimmers who have been chosen to take part in the Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay as it travels through Birmingham. Each Birmingham school was asked to nominate one pupil to carry the Baton and four of them were Orion swimmers! They were each nominated for their resilience, their contribution to school and community life and their sporting achievements.

First up on the 25th of July is Ellie Sibbald-Perkins who will carry the Baton at 16:19 from 215 High Street, Smethwick to 2 Roslyn Close.

On 27th July, Amelie Zarifeh will carry the Baton at 9:52 from 133 Selly Oak Road to 304 Selly Oak Road. At 10:06 Emily Rotherham will then carry it from 80 Ashmore Road, Cotteridge to 35 Park Avenue, Kings Norton. Finally, Sophia Okoosi-Dunn will carry the Baton at 11.18 from 124 Warwards Lane, Selly Park to 97a Warwards Lane.

We are immensely proud of these swimmers who fully deserve their selection. Why not come along and cheer them on the day?"
