Olympic gold medal winner Rulon Gardner crashed his motorcycle Tuesday morning in Colorado Springs, but escaped without a serious injury.

The 32-year-old wrestler was riding his motorcycle to practice
at the U-S Olympic Training Center when he crashed.

Gardner rode into a car pulling out between two parked vehicles.

The crash catapulted the heavyweight wrestler over the vehicle, but
he landed on his left arm and shoulder and rolled to his feet.

He was not wearing a helmet, but was not seriously injured.

Gardner won gold at the 2000 Olympics in Greco-Roman wrestling.
