Summary

This was one of two classes in 1904 with 10 competitors (along with lightweight). Charles Ericksen won the gold medal. Older records list him as American but Ericksen was still a Norwegian citizen in 1904. In the final Ericksen defeated Bill Beckman, who was likely the favorite as the 1903 AAU Champion. There is no record of a third-place match or tournament but third-place was awarded to Jerry Winholtz.
