MESA, Ariz., Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Arizona-native, Anthony Robles, successfully made his fifth GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt on Friday, January 29, 2021. Robles broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for most pull-ups in one minute with a 60-pound pack completing 30 pull-ups at Mesa High School in Mesa, Arizona. Robles returned to his former high school, and site of the start of his championship wrestling career, to break the previous record of 27, set on August 22, 2020 by Artem Sirobaba.
“As an Arizona native, it was a proud moment to be able to break a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title where my wrestling journey began,” said Robles following his attempt. “I have encountered my share of obstacles throughout my life, but my Mom has always instilled in me that I was unstoppable. I’ve carried that mantra with me in wrestling, work, and life and that’s what inspires me to tackle goals like this GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title.”
Robles’ attempt was aired Saturday, January 30, 2021 on the NFL Network. The attempt became official on Wednesday, February 3, 2021 when the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS team declared that Anthony Robles achieved 30 reps, breaking the existing record of 27.
Robles, who was born with one leg, began wrestling at his alma matter, Mesa High School, where he went from finishing last during his freshman year to a 96-0 record (Junior/Senior years) and being crowned a two-time Arizona State Champion and National High School Champion. Robles then walked on to the Arizona State University wrestling team and became a three-time All American and the 2011 NCAA National Champion.
