VIDEO Anthony Robles Wins Sports Award, and You Couldn’t Find a Prouder Mom

The ESPY Award show (short for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award) is presented by ESPN to recognize individual and team athletic achievement and other sports-related performance during the year preceding the show. On Wednesday night, there was a touching award given to an Arizona State University student who was born with one leg, but has been a champion in the sport of wrestling.  His mother gave his backstory, and I had goose bumps watching my 9-year-old grasp this young man’s triumph over adversity.  The link to the award clip isn’t online yet, but see Anthony describing his secrets on CNN after his NCAA win and notice his confidence.  He is a role model for all ages.
