Lori Harrigan-Mack is a three-time Olympic gold medal winner in softball and is in four Hall of Fames - three as an individual (for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and ASA/USA softball) and one as a team member (2004 Olympic team in the Olympic Hall of Fame). She also pitched the first ever no-hitter in Olympic history. Harrigan-Mack was born and raised in Anaheim, the youngest of five children. She started playing fast-pitch softball at age five and dominated in the sport throughout high school. An athletic scholarship brought her to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where she played all four years while earning a degree in criminal justice, after earning gold medals in Olympic softball in 1996, 2000 and 2004. Harrigan-Mack has found life challenging outside of the competitive softball world since retiring in 2004. She attributes her weight gain to a poor diet, several miscarriages and depression. Now 44 years old and 301 pounds, Harrigan-Mack wants to get healthy so she can live a long happy life with her husband and six-year-old son. Once the weight is off, she looks forward to buying jeans that look and feel good, walking up stairs without being out of breath and keeping up with her son without getting tired.
