At 22, Holley Mangold has qualified to represent Team U.S in the upcoming Olympics.
She recently said to Dayton daily magazine, that she’d always wanted to be in the Olympics, but ‘I always thought I’d get it for diving or gymnastics.’ It’s funny how things turn out. At 5’8 and 374 pounds, I think it seems like destiny that she has qualified for weightlifting.
From reading about her, its seems like she’s really pushed herself and is a very determined being, from originally setting her sights on the 2016 games and managing to qualify for the 2012 games. She has also added ‘35 Kilo’s’ onto the weight she could lift last year. She must be trying so hard to achieve the best she can.
She’s also the younger sister of Nick Mangold, who is ‘a three-time All pro center for the New York Jets’ - athleticism obviously runs in the family.
Good luck Holley…
