FormatDouble-elimination tournament.

The 1922 World Champion was Sweden’s Carl Westergren, but in Paris he moved up to the light-heavyweight class, where he won the gold medal. At the 1922 Worlds, the lightweight gold had been won by Finland’s Edvard Westerlund, who was now competing as a middleweight in Paris and, in Westergren’s absence, was the favorite. He won seven matches – one by fall, one by default, and five by decision – to take the gold medal. The runner-up was his teammate Arthur Lindfors, who repeated his silver medal finish from Antwerp. The bronze was won by Estonian Roman Steinberg, who was completely unheralded and was never heard from again internationally. Edvard Westerlund would compete thru the 1936 Olympics, winning a bronze medal in lightweight in 1928, but was not ranked at Berlin. He won another bronze in middleweight Greco-Roman at the 1933 European Championships.
