A former Olympic wrestler is serving a 1.5-pound hamburger at his Wyoming restaurant while competing on TV to be "The Biggest Loser." The mighty Rulon Burger at Rulon Gardner's Burger Barn restaurant in Afton is so big, it's molded in a pizza tin. It comes on a bun with all the toppings.

Gardner won gold at the 2000 Olympics by beating a Russian who hadn't lost in 13 years. Gardner's challenge to all comers now: Finish the burger plus a basket of fries and a 44-ounce drink in 20 minutes.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Gardner's best is 8 minutes, 23 seconds.

Gardner is competing to lose weight on the NBC show, "The Biggest Loser." He weighed in at 474 pounds, more than 200 pounds heavier than when he won gold.
