Olympia Badge 2020
Welcome to “Olympia Badge 2020”
The Olympic and Paralympic Games will be held in Tokyo, Japan in 2020 originally. Due to the pandemic, it will be postponed for a year. Yet, we can still continue the spirit of Olympic by learning more about it and getting ready for the coming Olympic and Paralympic Games. 2020 is also a special year for the Girl Scouts of Japan as it marks the centenary celebrations of the Association. To celebrate together and help Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world learn more about the Olympic Games, the Girl Scouts of Japan developed this activity pack and are proud to share it with our sisters and brothers in the Movement.
The Olympia Badge is a sports-oriented activity pack to help Girl Guides/Girl Scouts grow, develop and learn about the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the culture of the host country.

- Learn about Japan; its culture and sporting heritage;
- Experience the excitement of Olympic and Paralympic sports;
- Prepare like an athlete through physical, spiritual and cultural activities; and
- Understand how the Olympic Games bring countries together.
