  • Description

    The VIIIth European Judo Championships are celebrated in the Municipal Sport Palace of Barcelona, with the participation of representatives from twelve countries; a total of 150 contestants.

    This is a sport in which neither physical strength or age are vital factors to attain victory which in the majority of cases depends on skill and dexterity.

    As can be appreciated, in judo weight is almost of no account, it is technique which is decisive.

    This modality has gained great preponderance in the whole world and also in Spain.

    The Dutch Gressing was proclaimed superjudochamp, and the Spaniards Aparicio and Pons reached the semifinals in "second dan" and in all categories.

    England was winner in the classification by teams.
