Wales Sevens star Lee Williams had the honour of parading the Queen's Baton in Laugharne on Tuesday.
The Queen's Baton Relay is a tradition of the Commonwealth Games and symbolises the coming together of all Commonwealth nations and territories in preparation for the four-yearly festival of sport and culture.
The Glasgow 2014 Queen's Baton Relay is the curtain-raiser to the XX Commonwealth Games. Over a period of 288 days the baton will visit 70 nations and territories, cover 190,000 kilometres and involve a third of the world's population, making it the world's most engaging relay.
By the end of its journey the baton will have travelled around 118,000 miles across 70 nations and territories and been carried by over 10,000 baton bearers.
Williams was among a select few who had the honour of carrying the baton on Tuesday as the relay weaved its way through Carmarthenshire.
An early day began in Laugharne for Williams and his fellow Baton bearers before the baton headed for Carmarthen, Ammanford and Llanelli and then returning to Carmarthen.
The baton will be relayed by thousands of people throughout the Commonwealth, each one honoured by their own nation to participate in this unique tradition.
The finish line is in the host nation Scotland just in time for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony in Glasgow, where Her Majesty The Queen will read aloud Her message to the Commonwealth.
