(KSL News) -- Olympic Gold medallist Rulon Gardner was here in Salt Lake last weekend for the Days of 47 KSL 5 Parade, and last night, he was on Jay Leno.

The Wrestler from Star Valley Wyoming will be back here again Friday August 5th for a golf tournament and dinner at Thanksgiving point. Gardner will also auction off some of his collectible sports memorabilia to help raise money for his family to travel to Athens for the games.

Another Olympian, Heptathlete Tiffany Lott-Hogan of Utah County, is busy raising money. This Saturday morning at 9, all proceeds from movies at Pleasant Grove's Water Garden Theaters will be donated to Hogan's family for the trip. And also that day, there's a car wash in St. George, Utah at Rite-Aid. Lott-Hogan will be at both events, signing autographs.
