Led by James H. "Jimmy" Doolittle, they became known as the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders.<p>On Saturday, three of the four remaining Raiders met for what is likely to be the last time at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton, Ohio.<p>Waving to the crowd were former Lt. Col. Richard Cole, 98, of Texas, former Lt. Col. Edward Saylor, 93, of Washington state and 92-year-old former Staff Sgt. David Thatcher of Montana.

They take turns practicing the two lifts that make up Olympic weightlifting; the "Snatch," and the "Clean and Jerk."<p>The goal? To hoist large amounts of weight from the floor into an overhead position.<p>Among the lifters here is 5-foot-8 inch, 350-pound Holley Mangold. She is the epitome of power, in appearance, attitude and athletic ability.<p>Mangold, 22, has spent years trying on different sports in pursuit of her Olympic dreams.
