Robles was at a disadvantage compared to his friends right from the moment he was born. He only has a left leg, and his right leg was congenitally amputated.

The last two times he attended the NCAA, Robles only achieved modest results – reaching the top 10.

At the 2011 NCAA tournament, Robles compensated for his physical disadvantage with his strength and lightning-fast attacks, leaving his opponents unable to react.

“I don’t come into sports to attract attention. I chose freestyle wrestling, simply because I love this sport”, Robles said after his coronation.
