  • Description:  DEN HAAG, HOLLAND - 16-19 MAY: Peter Schlatter of Germany beat Benboudaoud of France 2) Peter Schlatter GER was the reigning European 65 kgs champion when he defended his title at the 1996 Hague Championships. He had a bye in the first round and then met the smouldering dark skinned Frenchman with the Algerian name, Larbi Benboudaoud. Benboudaoud had just started winning medals at international level and had easily won his first contest. He was out to make a name for himself. Schlatter was defending his name. Schlatter quickly found the Frenchman's left handed style awkward and Within no time Benboudaoud had a wazari on the board. Spurred on by the fear of being eliminated in his first contest - as happened at the 1994 Gdansk Europeans - Schlatter fought back and slowly mastered the awkward Frenchman preventing Benboudaoud's left hand constantly gripping the back of his jacket. Instead of defending, Schlatter went on the attack took Benboudaoud's right sleeve, put his right arm over the Frenchman's shoulder, firmly gripping the back of his jacket and launched an uchimata attack right on the edge of the mat. With his right foream forcing Benboudaoud's head down, Schlatter lifted the Fenchman's hips higher than his head so that he could defend no more and both fell heavily to the mat levelling the score. Still gripping the thrashing Frenchman, Schlatter comfortably pinned him down with a broadening smile as he watched the seconds tick away to the referee's call of ippon. Two contests later, Schlatter, like Benboudaoud was relegated to the repercharge by the eventual gold medallist Revazichhvili GEO, but both emerged as equal bronze medallists. during the Den Haag European Judo Championships at the Houtrust Sports Stadium, Den Haag, Holland from the 16-19 May 1996.
