This is the kind of athlete girl I love and someone I would absolutely LOVE to work with! Holley Mangold is a big girl with a big personality who is going to represent the USA in weightlifting at the summer Olympics. Forget that she can lift more than most guys on the NY Jets football team (her brother Nick Mangold, is the starting center) the thing that I love most about her is her rad personality and the fact that she is 100% OK with her body – in fact she refers to herself as sexy and loves the way she looks. And why shouldn’t she? I am so tired of girls complaining about being “fat”, that it’s very refreshing to hear an Olympic athlete who is 5’8 & 350 lbs say that she is good with who she is & her size, and if others have an issue with it, it’s their issue. Well said Holley. Now go kick some ass, have fun, and bring home the gold! xx
