Unstoppable: From Underdog to Undefeated: How I Became a Champion
(ePUB - Sep 2012)
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 that her son would be unstoppable.
Anthony first began wrestling in high school; he was the smallest kid on the team and finished the year in last place. But he completed his junior and senior years with a 96-0 record to become a two-time Arizona State champion. In college, he faced personal hardships which almost forced him to drop out. But Anthony remained focused on his goals and won the NCAA National Championship in March 2011. "Unstoppable" is the story of one man whose spirit and unyielding resolve remind us all that we have the power to conquer adversity--in whatever form.
