Olympic Athlete Holley Mangold will be on Biggest Loser

You may recall I wrote an article about Holley called “She’s 350 Pounds Olympics Bound”.  Holley is a weight lifter and although she had no expectation of placing in the Olympics she did secure 10th place.  She says she is joining Biggest Loser as a contestant because she feels her weight was one of the reasons she didn’t place higher even though in the past she felt it was a benefit in her sport.  She had considered retiring from the sport but has changed her mind and wants to compete in the next Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.  In order to join Biggest Loser she was forced to pull out of the Pan American Championships and the World University Games because of scheduling conflicts.
