In another setback for one of the world’s most decorated wrestlers, Olympic gold medalist Rulon Gardner has filed for bankruptcy.

His most valuable belongings will be sold Oct. 27 by the Salt Lake City auction house Erkelens & Olson.

The items include a Porsche, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and some 40 watches.

Gardner rose to fame at the 2000 Sydney Olympics by toppling Russian Alexander Karelin, who had been unbeaten for 13 years.

A year later, Gardner won the world title.

Later, Gardner nearly died after a night stranded in the Wyoming wilderness and survived a motorcycle accident and a plane crash.

Last year, he weighed in at 474 pounds on the reality TV show “The Biggest Loser” before losing weight in a failed attempt to qualify for the London Olympics.
