Summary

The favorites were likely the defending champion, Estonian Eduard Pütsep and Italy’s Giovanni Gozzi. Gozzi had won the 1927 European Championship with Pütsep second. But Pütsep went out after four rounds, eliminated on bad points. Gozzi went out after five rounds, but advanced to a match against Sweden’s Oscar Lindelöf for the bronze medal, which Gozzi won. Two wrestlers survived to the sixth round – German Kurt Leucht and Czechoslovaki Jindřich Maudr, with Leucht winning that match by fall to take the gold medal. This was Leucht’s only Olympic appearance although he would win a silver medal at the 1931 European Championships, where Maudr finished third.
