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 had led to the birth defect; but at age five, her one-legged child scaled a 50-foot pole without assistance. From that moment on, Judy knew without a doubt that her son would be unstoppable.

When Robles first began wrestling in high school, he was the smallest kid on the team and finished the year in last place. But Anthony’s family and coaches supported his decision to continue, and he completed his last years of high school with a 96–0 record—and became a two-time Arizona state champion.

In college, Robles had to prove himself again. Despite hardships both on and off the mat—including the temptation to quit school and get a job to help his family when they lost their home to foreclosure—he remained determined and became a champion once more. 

Since winning the national championship in March 2011, Robles has become a nationally recognized role model for children and adults alike. But Unstoppable is not just an exciting sports memoir or an inspirational tale of living with a disability; it is also a reminder that anyone has the power to conquer adversity, in whatever form.
