Born with one leg, 2011 NCAA Champion Anthony Robles became an unstoppable force in college wrestling who now shares his strategy for success and limitless belief in self and the motivation to do things other people wouldn't have thought possible.
When Anthony Robles was born without a right leg, there was little hope that he would go on to live a normal life, much less one focused on pursuing success in a sport as demanding as wrestling when such a disadvantage would prove a challenge that is almost insurmountable. But Robles proved to be a force that is unstoppable. With steely determination, a dedication to sharpening his mental strength and adapting his technique to win matches, Robles went from being the worst wrestler in the city of Mesa, Arizona to become the 2011 NCAA Division I Champion, a three-time All-American and NWCA Outstanding Wrestler of the Tournamentall the while winning with the disadvantage of wrestling able-bodied athletes. Motivated and charismatic, Robles credits his ability to succeed in the face of overwhelming challenges to a belief instilled in him by his mother from the time he was bornthat he could do anything and could overcome any obstacle that came his way.
His remarkable story has made him a sought after guest on major national media including ESPN, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," and his book "Unstoppable: From Underdog to Undefeated: How I Became a Champion" was released in the fall of 2012. A symbol of perseverance, Robles shares with audiences his philosophy that courage and the tenacity to never give up on your dream can make you unstoppable no matter how overwhelming the odds. Robles is the recipient of the 2011 ESPYs Jimmy V Award for Perseverance and the 2011 Most Courageous Athlete Award presented by the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association.
Currently a wrestling analyst for ESPN, Robles has been a commentator of the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships since 2012. In 2018, Robles set the world record for the most pull-ups in one minute, with 62, at a halftime of a Jets game.
