Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
Well deserved for Robles, great pub for the sport.

I think anyone who beats McD deserves an Espy personally.
To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
Very inspirational message and best acceptance speech of the night. What a great ambassador of the sport!
Awesome! No one deserves this award more than Robles. And I agree with Brother VALovers (tongue in cheek) assessment regarding beating McD as well. The fact that Robles not just beat but dominated a defending national champion and one of the best lightweights in the country in the finals made his story even greater! Congratulation Mr. Robles!
I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Robles for some time while my son was attending a camp where he was a technician. In addition to being a tremendous wrestler he is an outstanding person as well. He is upbeat and gracious to all who approach him, and takes time for every person who wants a picture, autograph, etc. I came away from the conversations I had with him convinced that he has a great future ahead of him. He is a great example for a young wrestler to follow.
