New York Jets center Nick Mangold has seen plenty of success in his first six NFL seasons and is arguably one of the top players in the league at his position. Apparently, the athletic gene must run in the Mangold family now that his sister Holley will be participating in the 2012 Olympics.
According to Maggie Hendricks of Yahoo! Sports, Holley will be participating in the 2012 Olympics after recording a 145-kilogram clean and jerk over the weekend at the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio. Just like her brother, Holley used to be a member of the offensive line for her high school team but gave up the sport to focus on weightlifting.
The funny thing is–Holley was originally training for the 2016 Olympics and happened to qualify for this summer’s games instead.
