Biography

Axel Cadier started as a swimmer and switched relatively late to wrestling at the age of 21. After his victory as a middleweight at the 1933 European Championships, he moved to light-heavyweight and won the Olympics title in 1936. Cadier won three European Championships – in 1935 and 1937 in light-heavyweight Greco-Roman, and in 1938 in freestyle, also winning a freestyle silver in 1935. For nearly a decade he dominated his weight class at Swedish Championships taking a total of 11 gold (6 in Greco-Roman, 5 in freestyle). From 1940-60 he fought as a professional wrestler in North America and then became a coach, for some time for the Norwegian national team, and later working as an instructor at the French State Sports Institute.
