The Greco-Roman light heavyweight was one of four Greco-Roman wrestling weight classes contested on the Wrestling at the 1908 Summer Olympics programme. Like all other wrestling events, it was open only to men. The light heavyweight was the second-heaviest weight class, allowing wrestlers up to 93 kilograms (205 lb).
