Athletes have appetites of Olympic proportions and a few of them teamed up with local restaurants that were hoping to be crowned champions last night.

Gold Medal Plates is a sold-out fundraiser for the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic teams. So far, the fundraiser has raised about $4 million for the Olympic movement in Canada.

Competitors included Tracy Lydster of The Dish, David Omar of Zinc, and Susan Kellock of Skinny Legs and Cowgirls.

The Edmonton winner will compete in the national championships Feb. 18 and 19 in Kelowna, B.C.
