Anthony Robles (Born with One Leg) Wins NCAA Wrestling Championship
 

 



After winning the NCAA wrestling championship Saturday in the 125-pound class to cap a perfect senior season, Anthony Robles hopped off the mat and leaped into the arms of Arizona State coach Shawn Charles.

Born without a right leg, the 22-year-old Robles beat defending champion Matt McDonough of Iowa, 7-1, in their final at the Wells Fargo Center.
After finishing fourth in the NCAAs two years ago and seventh last year, Robles went 36-0 as a senior using a mat style all his own.

The match was close by Robles' standards this season. He earned 24 of his victories by technical falls (margins of 15 points or better.).
Just before the start, Robles stood on one leg as he quickly shook the hand of McDonough at the center of the mat. As usual, Robles dropped to one knee at the opening whistle, supporting himself with his hands and arms. The empty right pants leg of his gold Arizona State singlet flapped around as he wrestled.
In the opening period, Robles got a two-point takedown and two points for exposing McDonough's back to the mat. That put him up 4-0. Later in the opening period, he got three more backs points to take a 7-0 lead. McDonough lone point came in the final period. Robles was penalized one point for stalling.
The sellout crowd of 17,099 gave Robles a standing ovation as he stood atop the podium with his crutch.

This is honestly historical. Look at the history of the sport of wrestling. It can be marked centuries ago. I don't think in the modern century has there been anyone like this dude..

Mad respect.

Dude he's NCAA champion(the guy with one leg).. So plenty of people lost to him.. And he's kinda of got an unfair advantage, because it's hard to probably grip someone with such a low center of gravity like that..

Didn't know having 1 leg actually gave someone a leg up (no pun intended) on the competition but good on him for winning.

How does the game of wrestling actually work?

He really does have a couple of unfair advantages when you think about it. Because he's missing a leg, his upper body strength is much than the 125lb kids that he's wrestling. He probably has the upper body strength of someone thats 40-50lbs heavier than him.

I knew I wasn't the only one thinking that. First off just looking at him throws me off and since wrestling is mostly grabs he has less to grab on. Plus he's probably stronger then every one else. Muscle weighs a lot more than fat so If we're both 125 and your missing a Leg you already know who has more muscle mass. Any way Congrats to dude. His Opponents should have known this before they stepped on the mat.

As a wrestler I can tell you he has a s**tload of unfair advantages.. If u watch that lil video you will notice dude couodnt get off his back bc there was no leg to grab.. He didnt know what to do and ut cost him 2 back points


I wrestled a guy with no legs and he has a less advantage than a guy with 1, but he was still strong as f**k and hard to manuver around

This. Not trying to discredit the guy, it takes determination to not let a handicap like that discourage you from participating in sports. But for wrestling he has a great strength advantage over all of his opponents because his natural weight. Not to mention, speaking as a former wrestler myself, how do you prepare to wrestle someone with one leg?

its not fair the weight that he is wrestling at he has a body of a 160 lb person but since he is missing a leg he gets to wrestle 125 which is bulls**t.... we had this dude where i went to high school he had one leg and no one wanted to wrestle him because he was three times the size of everyone esle since he was missing a leg
