    Was Jean Claude Van Damme "Mr. Belgium"?

    I have been looking into the carreer and alleged martial arts and bobdy
    building acomplishments of actor Jean Claude Van Damme.

    Some things are not adding up.

    He claims in his BIO that he won a "Mr. Belgium" body building
    competition, he doesn't say which year. Nowhere on the Net can I
    even FIND a "Mr. Belgium" competetion, boby building or otherwise.

    Strange: If you Google "Mr. Belgium", EVERY returned reference
    contains Van Damme's name, no others.
    A phoney tournament???

    Anybody know anything about this Mr. Belgium "competition"
    If real, what years was it held? Who sponsored it?

    Thanks, I think the guy is a poseur, a phoney.
    Yeah, he lifts weights and does
    katas in front of a mirror all day, but a real fighter
    or real boby builder? HAH!

    And of course his "Marital Arts Career" is spotty
    and devoid of references at best. When he first came
    to the US he was billed as a "European Champion" but of course
    that fell through with a little investigation. His tournament
    record as best I can tell is 18-2, and I can't tell if those were professional
    or amateur tournaments.

    I've seen a guy at a gym once that had promo on his car for him being mister belgium

    I think it's more of a 'beauty contest' than a bodybuilding contest
