The 2018 IMMAF Youth European Championships and the 2018 IMMAF Senior European Championships took place from June 18-22 at the Rin Grand Hotel in Bucharest, Romania.

The IMMAF Youth European Open Championships was the IMMAF’s first ever junior competition for 18, 19, and 20-year-olds only. Their purpose is to provide opportunity for younger rising stars to shine against competitors of a similar range of experience. In line with IMMAF’s ethos, they create a safer competition environment for younger adults who have not yet reached their physical peak.

Day 1 to 4 videos are available to watch on demand at immaf.tv, and Finals matches will be published next week
