Elizabeth Weil writes about the sister of New York Jets center Nick Mangold:

Holley Mangold, 22 and a superheavyweight Olympic weight lifter, is 5-foot-8 and weighs 350 pounds.

When she squats, which she can do with 525 pounds on her shoulders, she looks almost wholly like an egg. “I get a lot of Creepy McCreepersons interested in me because I’m so big it’s not normal, it’s like a fetish,” she told me one day in the gym. “And I don’t like to sit outside. Not because I don’t like to be outside, but usually there are plastic chairs. Once you break a couple plastic chairs, you’re afraid of them all.

Oh em gee, I love this woman!

Mangold dangled from a chin-up bar to stretch her back. “I’d like to see the other 350-pound ladies try this,” she said.

Holley Mangold, I hope you win the gold!

Cuz 'Merica, that's why!!
