Anders Oscar Ahlgren (12 February 1888 – 27 December 1976) was a Swedish wrestler who competed in the 1912 and 1920 Summer Olympics.[1]

In 1912, he won the silver medal in the light heavyweight class. In a remarkable final, he wrestled for nine hours against Ivar Böhling, before the bout was declared a draw. The judges refused to award a gold medal, and gave silver medals to both wrestlers.
