Biography

West German Greco-Roman wrestler Fritz Stange participated in three consecutive Olympic Games in the freestyle, in 1960 and 1964 with the mixed German team, and in 1968 for West Germany. In Roma he was eliminated after his second fight in the flyweight class, and in 1964 he placed fifth in the bantamweight tournament. At Mexico City he was eliminated in the third round.

His greatest moments came in 1966 when he earned both the European and the World Championship titles. One year earlier he won the silver medal at the Worlds. Domestically he claimed eight West German titles in fly- and bantamweight between 1955 and 1972, in addition to eleven more podium finishes. Stange worked for Mercedes-Benz in Stuttgart and Florida and rose up to a management position.
