One-legged US wrestler wins NCAA wrestling title

Anthony Robles from the US State of Arizona won the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) wrestling title in the 125-pound division on Saturday night, beating defending champion Matt McDonough of Iowa in the final, 7-1.

But the fact so remarkable is that Robles was born with only one leg, actually, without a right leg.

Robles is a three-time champion in the Pacific-10 Conference (Pac-10), and he finished in the top 10 in the NCAA championships each of the last two years before finally capturing the title this year.

"I didn't get into the sport for the attention," he said. "I wrestle because I love wrestling."
