One-Legged Wrestler Wins NCAA Championship

Robles takes 125-pound title with 7-1 decision; Penn State earns team

PHILADELPHIA - Anthony Robles finished his NCAA wrestling career in history-making fashion.

Robles, who was born without a right leg, took a 7-1 decision from Iowa sophomore Matt McDonough to win the 125-pound title at the NCAA wrestling championships Saturday. The Arizona State senior got the only takedown in the first period of the match and worked a pair of tilts to secure five back points.

"I had a lot of butterflies going out there.," said Robles, who admitted he's most likely done as a competitive wrestler but wants to remain involved in one facet or another.
