Biography

Kaarlo Johan Jalmari "Kalle" Anttila (30 August 1887 – 1 January 1975) was a Finnish wrestler. He won Olympic gold medals in the freestyle lightweight category in 1920 and in the Greco-Roman featherweight division in 1924. He also won world titles in the Greco-Roman featherweight in 1921 and 1922. Anttila was the Finnish champion in Greco-Roman wrestling in 1918–20 and 1929 and in freestyle wrestling in 1924 and 1929.
In 1908 Anttila opened a shop in Helsinki, where he worked as a tailor. In 1932 he founded Anttilan Pukimo OY (later Kalle Anttila OY), a company producing work outfits. His son, also Kalle Anttila, later took over his father's business and founded the Anttila department store chain that now operates in Finland, Estonia and Latvia.
