PLAYERS: Nick Mangold
TEAMS: New York Jets
They have a son who’s a perennial All-Pro in the NFL, and now a daughter who’s an Olympic-class athlete. Think the Mangold’s are proud?

She did it. ”I came up really quickly,” Holley Mangold said. ”I’ve never even been to a World Championship. I knew I had really great competitors I was going against.” With a swift 145-kilogram clean-and-jerk, Holley, who also played football in high school, made her brother, Nick, proud, clinching the second qualifying spot for the U.S. Weightlifting team in the 2012 Summer Olympics, held in London.

Big bro, unfortunately, won’t be there to see her compete on August 3, as he’ll be in training camp, clashing p...

As we mentioned last week, Holley Mangold had her moment to shine yesterday at the U.S. Olympic weightlifting trials in Columbus, O. Guess who’s going to the Olympics, b*tches? To say this makes our year is an understatement. Why? Because Nick Mangold’s sister is gregarious, knows she’s mammoth and is likely to bench press some Chinese gymnasts in the dining hall. Name another...
