In the wrestling semifinal of the 1912 Summer Olympics, Martin Klein and Alfred Asikainen grappled for 11 hours and 40 minutes before Klein finally managed to pin Asikainen. Klein was so exhausted from the bout that he was unable to wrestle for the gold the next day, leaving Swedish wrestler Claes Johansson with the gold medal.
