STILLWATER, Minn. (AP) — A three-time state champion swimmer for Stillwater High School who gained more than 100 pounds in subsequent years is the grand prize winner of the NBC-TV show "Biggest Loser."

Twenty-four-year-old Rachel Frederickson started at 260 pounds and shed 155 pounds, or more than half her body weight, to win the $250,000 prize at the show's live finale Tuesday night. Frederickson had the highest percentage of weight loss of the three finalists at nearly 60 percent.
