After seeing many NFL players, such as Houston Texans star J.J. Watt, do the box jump, Olympic weightlifter Holley Mangold wanted to give it a shot—with a comedic twist.
Holley, the sister of New York Jets Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold, decided to poke a little fun at the whole craze. She attempted it in jest, and in the end, she succeeded in entertaining us.
Athletes come in all shapes and sizes. While having crazy athleticism may come in handy in football or basketball, not every athlete needs to be Watt-like. Different sports require different skills, and that's what sets athletes like Mangold apart.
Luckily, the Olympian doesn't have to rely on her hops in weightlifting.
