Bislett stadion in Oslo, Norway, 1948

The 3rd European Athletics Championships were held from 22 August to 25 August 1946 in the Bislett Stadion in Oslo, Norway. For the first time it was a combined event for men and women, and for the first time a city in Scandinavia hosted the championships. Contemporaneous reports on the event were given in the Glasgow Herald.[1][2]

Two of the women's medalists from France underwent sex change later. Claire Brésolles became Pierre Brésolles, and Léa Caurla became Léon Caurla.[3]
