Born with one leg, Anthony Robles grew up to become an unstoppable phenomenon in NCAA wrestling, competing against able-bodied challengers and ultimately winning the NCAA Champion title.
Today Anthony shares his inspirational success strategy—a limitless belief in self and the motivation to do things no one ever thought possible.
With a driven and charismatic personality, Anthony talks with audiences about how he succeeds in the face of overwhelming challenges and credits that attitude to his mother. From the time he was born, she instilled in him that he could do anything and overcome any obstacle that came his way.
A symbol of perseverance, Robles offers his inspirational philosophy that courage, tenacity, and never giving up on your dream, will make you unstoppable—no matter how overwhelming the odds.
As an infant, all indications were that there was little hope of Anthony going on to live a normal life. Yet, his determination, even at a young age, turned those odds around. Once he focused his belief on pursuing success in a sport that so clearly put him at an insurmountable disadvantage, Robles proved to be an unrelenting force.
Steely determination, an unwavering commitment to sharpening his mental strength, and the ability to adapt his technique to win matches, Robles went from being the worst wrestler in the city of Mesa, Arizona to the NCAA Division I Champion, a three-time All-American, and the National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) Outstanding Wrestler of the Tournament—all the while overcoming the disadvantage of wrestling able-bodied athletes. He was also inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.
His remarkable story has made him a sought-after guest on major national media including ESPN, The Ellen DeGeneres show, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He details his story in his book, Unstoppable: From Underdog to Undefeated: How I Became a Champion. Anthony was named by President Obama as a member of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition and serves as an NCAA wrestling analyst for ESPN. Robles is the recipient of the ESPYs Jimmy V Award for Perseverance and his story will be the subject of the motion picture, Unstoppable.

Anthony exceeded our expectations as a motivational speaker. Over the last three years, I have been responsible for six speakers, including two that were featured on TED. While all of them were great, none of them were as well-received as Anthony. He is the only presenter to have received a standing ovation.Wells Fargo Bank
