Senior wrestler to celebrate extraordinary ASU career


January 28, 2011

Among the legendary athletes who have graced the practice and playing fields of Arizona State University – the courts and the arenas, the tracks and the gymnasiums – one more athlete will be added to the list come Sunday.

Senior wrestler Anthony Robles will be competing in his last ASU home meet Jan. 30, in Wells Fargo Arena. 

If you only attend one sporting event this semester, says Don Bocchi, senior associate athletics director, this is the one to see.   Download Full Image

An interdisciplinary studies student in the School of Letters and Sciences, Robles will be celebrating his final ASU match Sunday with fellow senior teammates, but Robles will be celebrating much more than that.

Robles will be celebrating a career that has earned him two All American wrestling titles and a No. 2 ranking in the country. This season he is undefeated with a real chance to win the National Championship.

More significantly, Robles has secured himself a spot in ASU athletics history, as an extraordinary competitor who has overcome extraordinary obstacles. Robles was born without a leg.

"Anthony faced severe challenges as he established himself as an athlete," says Bocchi in this week's Devil's Insider. "He has defeated those challenges.”

In addition to being described as a good student and a great competitor, Robles has been called one of the most amazing athletes in the NCAA. In other words, if you haven't seen Robles in action then heed the advice of Bocchi: "You need to come out and see this last duel."

Support Robles and his fellow teammates this Sunday, Jan. 30, at Wells Fargo Arena on ASU’s Tempe campus. The match begins at 2 p.m.
