How Olympic Weightlifter Kate Nye is Prepping to Qualify for Tokyo 2020 Athletes are taking over the NBC Olympics Reddit account to host "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) discussions. Weightlifter Katherine (Kate) Nye, 21, was the latest athlete to take on an AMA for the series. Nye declared that she'll be doing "everything [she] can" to realize her goal of becoming an Olympic medalist. On Reddit, she shared details on exactly what that looks like: Nye wrote that she trains 6 to 8 times per week (each session is three-hours long). While Nye's training is very structured, she wrote that she eats "healthy but intuitively, with no set diet."
