Anthony Robles is coming to CWU to share his story of courage and perseverance Thursday, April 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) Ballroom. Tickets are free and available at www.cwu.edu/tickets.

College wrestling isn’t the most publicized sport, but the nation was watching two years ago when Robles took home the 125-pound Individual Championship, despite being born with only one leg. The national title was the culmination of his wrestling career, where he was a three-time All American at Arizona State, and launched him into cult-hero status among sports fans.

Robles’ accomplishments on the mat have earned him a job as a wrestling analyst at ESPN and a spot in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. He has also written a book chronicling his unlikely rise to the pinnacle of American wrestling. Unstoppable: From Underdog to Undefeated is Robles’ inspiring story, in his own words.

Don’t miss Robles share high and low pointsboth on and off the mathe encountered on his quest to become a national champion.
