We have many ways to show “power”, but for Guinness World Record holder Anthony Robles (Anthony Robles), power comes from a firm mentality.
Anthony was born missing a right leg, as if he had been struggling from the first day of life. So whenever he wants to achieve his goals, he always works harder than ordinary people. Even the most difficult situation cannot prevent Anthony from moving towards his goal.
On March 8, 2020, in the FanShield 500 NASCAR race held at Phoenix Raceway in Phoenix, Arizona, Anthony successfully refreshed [the most pull-ups completed with 80 pounds in 1 minute] with 23 results. Guinness The title of world record is 5 more than the previous record.
After experiencing the longest 60 seconds of his life, Anthony’s efforts in sports career reached a fixed point at the moment when the certification officer handed over the world record certificate.
Anthony’s first challenge was when he was 14 years old, when he decided to participate in a high school wrestling match.
Learning to wrestle in a single-legged state requires a lot of perseverance and determination. Fortunately, these qualities were already possessed by Anthony when he was very young.
Although Anthony won the last place in the City Championship, the ambitious athlete sees it as a growing experience.
“After that game, I set a goal for myself to be the best wrestler in Arizona. I was fortunate enough to have the help of several great coaches and teammates, so when I graduated from high school, I have won the Arizona state championship twice and the high school national championship once.”
This also allowed Anthony to win multiple college wrestling championships during his college years.
A few years later, Anthony set a goal of Guinness World Record title with his rich experience.
“Challenging the world record in front of thousands of people, the atmosphere of the scene makes people excited. But what’s worse, 30 seconds after the challenge, my muscles began to fatigue and hit the wall. But the audience cheered for me like that. It gave me a dose of adrenal hormones, which gave me more strength to complete the challenge. When I was over, my arms were almost immobile.”
At present, Anthony’s goal is to break more records to realize his potential and challenge the limits.
