The Greco-Roman middleweight 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 middleweight was the second-lightest weight class, allowing wrestlers up to 73 kilograms (161 lb).

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Jósepsson is listed as Icelandic in the Official Report's detailed listing of wrestling results (Cook, p. 333) but Iceland was not one of the 22 National Olympic Committees present at the Games, and was controlled by Denmark at the time. The wrestler is later listed as Danish in the Official Report's list of competitors (Cook, p. 697).
