BRIDGETOWN – Barbados – Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth showed off her amazing javelin throwing skills during her visit to the Commonwealth island on Sunday.
Coverage from the BBC shows the Queen utilising some astounding javelin throwing skills that truly wowed the assembled crowd at a local Bridgetown athletics event.
The Queen, who popped in to the event on a surprise visit, was given a gold medal for an amazing 56.4m throw.
Errol Graham, 43, was at the athletics event on a day out with his family when he saw the Queen’s stupendous javelin throw.
“We were sitting there and suddenly out of the stadium came the Queen of England. I thought I was dreaming and the kids loved it. She threw the javelin even further than our local boy. Absolutely wonderful it was.”
Prince Philip was on good form too by quipping: “Next she’ll be turning into a bloody Zulu.”
The Royal entourage were on an excursion after relaxing at the island’s 5 star St Moritz villa. Next stop on the royal tour is Jamaica and maybe Her Majesty will show Usain Bolt a thing or two about running the 100m.
