HISTORY:
The Goldenes Führersportabzeichen was introduced by von Schirach on the 6th of May 1938 and was awarded to those HJ and DJ leaders* who achieved a minimum points score of 7500 points (6500 for those aged 33 and over) in the 'Führer-Zehnkampf' or Leaders' decathlon.

The competition was held over the course of two days and was divided into two age-groups:
Stufe A: 18-32
Stufe B: 33 and older

*Gefolgschaftsführer and higher, Fähnleinführer and higher including those on the RJF staff, Gebiet staff, Bann staff and Jungbann staff.

All competitors had to already hold the HJ achievement badge in silver.

The events were:

100m
1000m
High-jump
Long-jump
Throwing club accuracy test
300m breaststroke
Small-calibre shooting
Cross-country navigation test

The badge was awarded for a period of five years and to continue wearing the badge after this point the leader had to achieve the required points total twice more within that 5 year period. This never actually happened because it was decided to suspend requalification until after the war. If a leader had failed to achieve requalification the badge would have been taken away.

A further part of the qualification criteria stated that any leader older than 35 who was able to satisfy the requirements of Stufe A would never again be required to requalify for the badge.

There is only one known maker: M1/101 Gustav Brehmer

The numbers of badges awarded varies depending on the source but it's likely to be somewhere between 12 and 15 thousand.

The badge was worn on the right breast pocket.
