Gardner won wrestling gold medal in Sydney
CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Rulon Gardner spent his lunch hour in a dusty rodeo arena, doing one of the things he does best -- inspire.
"My life has always been a challenge,'' the Olympic champion wrestler said Thursday. "I didn't have the issues that these kids have, but I had a learning disability. A lot of the time I doubted that I could get through life with all the obstacles.
"Some people tried to shoot me down, and I just kept strong to my dreams and believing in myself.''
