The pictures of her snatch are unflattering, but she cleans up nice for the camera.

Why do I fall for it every - f**kin' - time? I should know better - I really should.

Ya, know, I know her trainer probably told her that she needs to eat as much as possible while training heavily, but fark. You're an olympic athlete, you should not look like that. Either there is something wrong with you, or you are doing something horribly wrong dietarily.

Careful. She can snap you like a toothpick.

MrBallou: Careful. She can snap you like a toothpick.


Oh, without a doubt. I'm just saying, if you're doing serious weightlifting (which, as she's going to the olympics is highly likely) you have to work pretty damned hard to be fat like that eating anything even remotely healthy (not impossible, but many strongmen say that it's almost impossible to cram enough calories down their gullet to maintain weight when they are training hard). So it's either healthy food, and she's pounding a TON of it, terribly unhealthy food and she's eating a lot of it, or she's got something very wrong going on metabolically.

I read a very good article about the World's Strongest Man yesterday, and in the article he talked about how the extra weight is actually a necessity for weighlifters. The fat provides padding against the abuse that occurs when the weights bump into the body, but more importantly, it's necessary as counterweight. Apparently it would actually be impossible to lift higher weights if you were lighter, because you would just tip over without the anchor of more pounds.

Apparently it would actually be impossible to lift higher weights if you were lighter, because you would just tip over without the anchor of more pounds.


The padding argument makes sense up to a point, especially in strongman-style events. As far as the counterweight thing - "The things they lift are so inhumanly heavy that they have no choice but to turn their bodies into massive counterweights." - I think that he's generally referring to getting heavy overall, not fat-specific. Fat isn't really substantial enough or distributed properly to be of any significant assistance, and, especially in olympic barbell lifts, is far more likely to interfere with good form and bar path. Strongmen do tend to be fatter than other athlete, but it's muscle mass that's the goal, and they simply don't care if they've got some fat on top.

Brian Shaw, the guy in the article Rincewind53 referenced, eats like this:

"As far as nutrition, I wake up and normally have a shake then have breakfast. I go back and forth between shakes and meals. I normally drink MHP Up Your Mass, which is my standard shake and has a little more calories and is a gainer shake with calories. I'll typically have 3-4 of those MHP Up Your Mass shakes a day and then also 4-5 different meals broken up every 2 to 2 ½ hours a day. A typical meal is either beef or chicken for me. I normally do half pound to three quarters of a pound of meat and then carbohydrates such as: rice, whole-wheat pasta or yams or something like that. I also have milk with all of these meals for the extra calories. The part that I fault on is getting vegetables in, I know that I need to get that in but it always tends to fall back onto protein and carbs."

He looks like this:

Nobody's denying this girls brutally strong. But for her to be training at the level she is, and still be that fat, takes some serious dedication to eating or some sort of metabolic mishap.

For an Olympic weight lifter she has absolutely no tone in those photos. How does she manage that?

2012-07-17 11:08:05 AM  
Holly Mangold is pretty awesome, but she could probably do better if she lost SOME mass. Her division is superheavyweight, which is only 75kg+, and the two lifts are easier if you have slightly less...erm, "stuff" in the way. I believe the best lifter could be argued to be the Russian Olha or maybe the Chinese Jan Miran, who is 275 lbs. Mangold is 300ish, probably a little more. I would put her frame more into the "powerlifter" style, but you can't deny her strength. It's just the nature of the beast at that weight that you will be so large.

2012-07-17 11:09:22 AM  
Oh and for the "tone" people - in superheavy, you won't. It's pure strength in a lift set that doesn't make you look good, just strong and quick.

She doesn't look much different (taking into account the differences between male and female physiology) than many NFL line men.

I am not sure what your point is, but you are coming off as judgmental and critical. If your only point is that she eats a lot, I don't think anyone would disagree with that. Weight is not necesarily a penalty in this type of lifting, so I am not sure the grounds of your criticism.

She was only the incompetent weightlifter's daughter, but I couldn't fault her snatch...

/cricketer's daughter - liked a full toss in the crease
//roadmender's daughter - liked her asphalt
///petshop owner's daughter - liked a cockatoo
////and so forth
 
2012-07-17 11:11:47 AM  
Hmph. At least when I subbied an article on her earlier this year I didn't go for the obvious. No points for layups, subby.

/Congrats to Holley though, she made the team!
 
2012-07-17 11:12:50 AM  
Is this a new meme on Fark? Calling unattractive women "hotties"?
 
2012-07-17 11:13:01 AM  
I have nothing against her, her weight or anything else. Good on her for making the Olympics which is more than I will ever do.

But, she is gonna look pretty goofy in that stewardess uniform Ralph Lauren made for her.

There was a pretty good interview with the two of them during one of the pre-game shows last season. Can't remember which show, but it was probably Countdown.

Oh, I get it now Subby..."Hottie" because she sweats profusely all of the time!

I DO like what Ralph Lauren did with her Olympic Uniform...a Flag-themed sarong is a nice choice:

But the 22-year-old athlete, who this year will compete as part of the United States' weightlifting team, says she always thought her Olympic sport would be gymnastics - until her body eating got in the way.

Mi-ran Jang is Korean, not Chinese. She doesn't have anywhere near the gut or body fat of Mangold.

/met her flying to Korea once, she's a nice person and was able to suggest a good gym I could visit while I was in Seoul

I mean monetary support. I read somewhere that she was trying to raise money -- just a few hundred or a few thousand dollars -- to actually get to London. And that her stipend from USA Weightlifting was a few hundred dollars per month.
 
2012-07-17 11:15:49 AM  

Waldo Pepper: Hmm, she made the Olympics with the rest of the high caliber athletes and the rest of us are typing away on Fark. Me thinks she knows a bit more about her training and proper weight than us.


Wait, wait, wait. Some guy on Fark who (maybe) likes to work out might now know better than the person who is training an Olympic athlete?

No, that's ridiculous. Anyway, let me tell you what's wrong with her form...
 
2012-07-17 11:16:04 AM  
I saw an HBO show on her, she seems really cool and has a great personality. And does clean up pretty well.

Holley is a good girl. Grew up a few miles away from my parents. She was the first female offensive lineman a few years ago (at the local catholic school).

Wish all the best to her.

From Wikipedia:

In a head-on collision accident in 2007 that demolished her truck, she escaped serious injury by "pushing the steering wheel away from her body as the crash occurred, leaving the steering wheel broken and crumpled."
