Olympic Training Center wrestler Rulon Gardner failed to make weight Friday at the U.S. Olympic trials, declining to step on the scale in Iowa City after doctors shut down his weight cut due to medical issues that included him passing out. Gardner won an Olympic gold medal in 2000, an Olympic bronze in 2004 and a world title in 2001. Photo by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
