1949 European Championships
The 1948 European Figure Skating Championships were the European Figure Skating Championships of the 1947-1948 season. Elite senior-level figure skaters from European ISU Member Nations, in adtdition to the United States and Canada, competed for the title of European Champion. Skaters competed in the disciplines of ladies' singles, men's singles, and pair skating. Because North Americans were allowed to participate, the best European single skaters, Eva Pawlik of Austria and Hans Gerschwiler of Switzerland, were awarded only the European Silver Medals. That was the reason the International Skating Union restricted the 1949 Europeans and all the following European Championships to European skaters.
Button is the only winner from outside Europe in men's singles.
Scott is the only winner from outside Europe in ladies' singles.
