    Background: The European Judo Championships were held in Rotterdam on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th November.

    Eleven European countries sent their leading exponents of judoka to compete for nine different countries - 125 competitors in all.

    The bouts ranged over titles for lightweight, medium weight, and heavy weight; first, second, third & fourth dan and team championship.

    The star of the two days' events was the Dutchman, Anton Goesink -- he became European Champion in all categories.

    England came first in the Championship team events.

    Anton Goesink had relatively little opposition to become champion of the 4th. dan; his opponents - both French - withdrew from the contest. One, Picard, was hurt; the other, Henri Courtine surrendered without a fight.

    All the contests were referred by highly-qualified Japanese. The mat on which the bouts were fought is considered to be the largest in Europe - 12 x 24 metres - large enough to accommodate, if need be, three simultaneous matches.
