It's kind of like the expression "I could beat you with one arm tied behind my back!" But it's true... except it's a leg and it's not tied, it's just not there. Anyways, Anthony has literally taken this expression to reality as he has defeated thousands of wrestlers in his career. Now he is sponsored by Nike and touring the World as a motivational speaker for his amazing epic story.

Push-Up Power

Anthony's first big accomplishment was breaking the record for most push-ups at his school. Breaking this record inspired Anthony that he could excel past his non-disabled schoolmates so he got into wrestling. In grade 8, Anthony's record was 5-8 and he was 12 pounds lighter than all the other wrestlers in his weight class. It would be a long road to success for Anthony as his missing leg brought forth many disadvantages.

Crutch Capitalization

Anthony owes a lot of his success to his use of crutches. Anyone who knows that using crutches is extremely tiring, so imagine using crutches everyday of your life. This is what Anthony had to do and it gave him incredible arm strngth. From there, Anthony's amazing dedication to becoming extremely fit led the way to becoming one of the greatest wrestlers today!
