A Bro You Should Know - Anthony Robles

Anthony Robles is the top-ranked wrestler in the 125 pound weight class at this week's NCAA championships. There are so many cool things about Robles that I don't even know where to begin. He was a stand-out basketball player when he was younger. He went 96-0 in his final two high-school wrestling seasons. The most impressive part about all his accomplishments is the fact that he did them all on one leg. Robles was born without a right leg. The dude crutches a sub 8 minute mile, and plans on shaving that time down to sub 6. This guy would dominate the Paralympics. Can you imagine seeing him in the weight room? He takes "everything you got" to a whole new level. He's obviously been an inspiration to his coach and teammates at ASU, and now he has the opportunity to win a national championship...on one leg.
