Feb. 4 (UPI) -- An Arizona athlete broke a Guinness World Record by completing 30 pull-ups in one minute while wearing a 60-pound pack.
Anthony Robles, a wrestler whose past accomplishments include being named the 2011 NCAA Champion in the 125-pound weight class, attempted the record Jan. 29 at Mesa High School and Guinness announced Wednesday that he successfully captured the record.
Robles, who was born with only one leg, completed 30 pull-ups in one minute while wearing the 60-pound pack, breaking the previous record of 27 pull-ups, which was set by Artem Sirobaba in August 2020.
"As an Arizona native, it was a proud moment to be able to break a Guinness World Records title where my wrestling journey began," Robles said.
"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."
