The powerful and inspiring story of an all-American wrestler who defied the odds
Anthony Robles is a three-time all-American wrestler, the 2011 NCAA National Wrestling Champion, and a Nike-sponsored athlete. He was also born without his right leg. Doctors could not explain to his mother, Judy, what led to the birth defect, but at the age of five, the one-legged toddler scaled a fifty-foot pole unassisted. From that moment on, Judy knew without a doubt that her son would be unstoppable.
When Anthony first began wrestling in high school, he was the smallest kid on the team and finished the year in last place. Yet Anthonys family and coaches supported his decision to continue, and he completed his junior and senior years with a 960 record to become a two-time Arizona State champion.
In college, Anthony had to prove all over again that he could excel. Despite hardships on and off the matincluding the temptation to quit school and get a job to help his family when they lost their home to foreclosureAnthony focused his determination and became a champion once again.
Since winning the national championship in March 2011, Anthony has become a nationally recognized role model to kids and adults alike. But Unstoppable is not just an exciting sports memoir or an inspirational tale of living with a disability. It is also the story of one man whose spirit and unyielding resolve remind us all that we have the power to conquer adversityin whatever form.
Anthony Robles is a three-time all-American wrestler and motivational speaker. A graduate of Arizona State University, he is the 2011 NCAA National Wrestling Champion.
