Mattie Rogers is a 20-year-old competitive weightlifter who is set to represent the United States at the Olympics in Brazil this year, and she's repeatedly broken American records in her weight class—but now she'll actually get recognized on the street after a video of an exercise gone wrong went viral this week.
