This Is The Face Of Inspiration

Meet Anthony Robles, one of the 2011 NCAA wrestling champions:

I had a lot of butterflies going out there. This year I think that was the biggest difference in my wrestling, was my mental game. Going into every match I was real relaxed, real calm. But before that, before this match, it was nothing but butterflies. I felt like I was going throw up, I was so scared I almost started crying. But it's just the atmosphere. It's the true athletes that are able to just overcome that.

He also said he's likely done as a competitive wrestler but would like to remain involved with the sport.
