Mr. Europe Competition by FIHC

From 1950 to 1968, the International Weightlifting Federation considered itself as the world governing organization for Bodybuilding too (At that time the name was therefore FIHC - Fédération Internationale Haltérophile et Culturiste). From time to time - usually at the European Weightlifting Championships the Mr. Europe competition was held. It is not to be confused with identical named events organized by other organizations. In particular, it was only reserved for amateurs. The contest consisted of two each with points assessed exercises: athletic impression (without muscle contraction) and free posing.
In some years there was next to the overall ranking also separate rankings in body size classes? In the missing years the competition was not held.
Remark: Bodybuilding in other federations as the FIHC it is not the concern of my web site.
