 Are you looking for great Scoutmaster’s minutes to share during the upcoming London Olympics? Look no farther than Reader’s Digest, which has been sharing inspiring stories for generations.

One such inspiring story, which you can find at, tells the surprising story of how Jesse Owen’s biggest challenger in the long jump at the 1936 Olympics, a German athlete, encouraged him and befriended him just 100 yards away from a glaring Adolph Hitler. (You may have to explain the racial undertones of the Berlin Games, but it’s history kids need to hear.) That’s not all you’ll find at the Reader’s Digest site. Visit for more inspiring stories, many of which could form the basis of gold-medal Scoutmaster’s minutes.
