2010 Card-vent Calendar: December 4

December 4, 2010:
2008 Upper Deck Football Heroes #258 Rulon Gardner

A true American hero, Garnder won the 2000 Sydney Olympics gold medal in Greco-Roman wrestling, defeating one of the most dominant athletes who ever lived. Alexandr Karelin had been undefeated up until that point for 13 years. He didn't even surrender a single point during the last six years of the run. Check out Gardner's stunning victory.

That has got to be a candidate for the most amazing sports moment of the 2000s (2000-2009). I'm sure there are a few that would give this a run for its money, and I'd like to hear your thoughts below.
