Anthony Robles is a sophomore at Arizona State University, where he wrestles in the 125-pound weight class. He advanced to the semi-finals in his weight before losing to the number 1 seed. His record for the season is now 28-7, and he still can finish as high as third place. He has already assured himself of All-American status.
This, despite that Anthony Robles has only one leg. He was born without a right leg, and uses crutches anytime he is not wrestling. He compensates for his missing limb with outstanding upper body strength.
In a sporting world which seems to have its share of crybabies and prima donnas, it's refreshing to know that truly inspiring athletes such as Anthony Robles are still out there.
