This award is the "Hitler Youth Golden Leader's Sports Badge"- insituted on 15 May 1938 for award to HJ Leaders from the rank of Fahnlein to Gefolgschaftsfuhrer for passing the annual decathelon. No awards were rendered after 1943....an estimated 11,000 awards were presented. Though a Hitler Youth award, it could be worn on Military as well as Political uniforms....

Afrikakorps Panzer Feldwebel Portrait. At least three medals that I couldn't recognized:
1. Medal above the Panzer Assault Badge
2. Medal at the center row above pocket (right of EK)
3. Medal below the marksmanship lanyard (is it Spanish Badge?)

The 2nd medal on the medal bar is the Spanish Military Merit Order (red enamel for War service); the medal above the Panzer badge is the Italian/German Afrika Campaign Medal (Italian award for German Afrika Korps"); and the award below his lanyard is a Spanish Cross....can't tell what grade/etc. (probably Bronze with swords)....
