Anders Larsson (wrestler) Wikipedia
Anders Larsson (2 July 1892 – 4 January 1945) was a Swedish freestyle wrestler who won the gold medal in the light-heavyweight class at the 1920 Summer Olympics.
Larsson was nicknamed "Padd-Anders" for his large, paddle-like palms. He worked as a restaurant janitor and bouncer and consulted police forces on self-defense techniques. At the 1920 Olympics he rescued Köre Sörvik, a member of the Norwegian Olympic team, by stopping a man who tried to stab Sörvik with a knife in a dance club brawl.
