Wrestler born without a right leg advances in NCAA championships

An Arizona State wrestler born without a right leg is the No. 1 seed in the 125-pound class at the NCAA Wrestling Championships in Philadelphia and two wins away from taking the championship.

"I really don't see missing my leg as a handicap,” Robles told Philadelphia television station WPVI (click here to read their story and watch video of Robles) before the tournament. “You know, my parents raised me strong and they didn't give me any special treatment. So, I believe I can do anything I set my mind to and wrestling is something I enjoy, I love it and I'm just trying to be best at it."
