An Olympic champion wrestler has been serving a 1.5-pound hamburger at his Wyoming restaurant, even while  competing to be “The Biggest Loser” on TV. The mighty Rulon Burger at Rulon Gardner’s Burger Barn restaurant 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 Alexander Karelin, a Russian who hadn’t lost in 13 years. Gardner’s challenge to call comers now: Finish the burger plus a basket of fries and a 44-ounce drink in 20 minutes. Winners get a signed Rulon Gardner Olympic Champion T-shirt and their name on Rulon’s Wall of Fame. Gardner’s best time is 8 minutes, 23 seconds, set when he opened the restaurant in his hometown in 2004. This year, Gardner has been competing to lose weight on the NBC show, “The Biggest Loser.” He weighed in at the beginning at 474 pounds, more than 200 pounds heavier than when he won gold.
