Summary

Finland’s Kalle Anttila was a big favorite in this class. At Antwerp he had won a gold medal in freestyle wrestling, but he was Greco-Roman featherweight World Champion in both 1921 and 1922. In round six he faced Sweden’s Fritiof Svensson, 1922 World Champion as a bantamweight who had moved up in class, but Anttila won by fall in 10:45. The gold medal match came to Anttila against his teammate, Aleksanteri Toivola, who had previously lost to Svensson. Anttila won by decision for the gold medal with Toivola earning a silver. The bronze went to Sweden’s Erik Malmberg, who improved in 1928 to a silver medal in this class, and then moved up to lightweight and won a gold medal at the 1932 Olympics.
