Mangold heads to Olympics to see sister compete

New York Jets center Nick Mangold, who had maintained in the off-season that he would not miss training camp in order to see his sister in the Olympics, has changed his mind.

Mangold said via Twitter that he is on his way to London to watch his sister Holley Mangold compete in the weightlifting competition. Holley Mangold is competing for the United States in the heavyweight division.

Earlier in camp, the Jacksonville Jaguars excused cornerback Aaron Ross to go to London to watch his wife, Sanya Richards-Ross compete in the track competition.
