Our goal is an Ethical Olympics with No Animal Suffering

London Olympic Silver medalist Dotsie Bausch|| We are asking the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games|| to serve 100% cage-free eggs and 100% stall-free pork!||

What we want

Please make the sourcing of 100% cage-free eggs and 100% stall-free pork a reality

At the athletes village we are asking for the 100% sourcing of eggs from non-cage facilities (cage-free / free-range) and for the 100% sourcing of pork from gestation crate-free facilities (no gestation crates.) We ask the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games to make the best effort to meet this goal and inform the public about their progress.

Why 100% Stall-Free Pork?

Confining pregnant sows in gestation crates (stall) takes freedom from pigs to move around and express their natural behaviors. The consequences of producing meat from stressed pigs are serious. For example, the levels of hormones such as catecholamine and glucocorticoid are higher in stressed pigs. This negatively influences their muscle, bone density and testosterone and can cause an immune deficiency, can lower blood glucose levels and can affect cardiovascular function.

Why 100% Cage-Free Eggs?

Hens confined in small cages suffer much pain and stress as their welfare is greatly compromised. The demand for cage-free eggs is growing globally. Eggs produced in free-range facilities contain more protein, vitamin E, βcarotene and omega 3 than eggs from conventional facilities. The nutrients of cage-free eggs greatly influence the performance and results of elite athletes. 

Please make the sourcing of 100% cage-free eggs and 100% stall-free pork a reality

If these goals are not met, boycott animal products at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games venues.

Watch Animals in Japan


This campaign is a collaboration effort to ask the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games to improve the farm animal welfare of animals used in the food they use. The campaign letter was written by a London Olympic Silver Medalist, American Olympic cyclist Dotsie Bausch, and her fellow Olympians who support the campaign.  Animal Rights Center, an animal advocacy NPO in Japan, and The Humane League Japan, the Japan office of an American NGO that advocates for cage-free eggs, support this.
