ESPYS Winners 2017 – Full ESPY Awards Winner List
Wednesday’s 2017 ESPYS celebrate achievements in sports. Gossip Cop has a full list of the winners below!
The ESPY Awards, which stand for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award, recognize accomplishments in a wide variety of sports. From baseball, basketball, boxing and bowling to soccer, golf, racing and tennis, athletes both male and female are honored. And while some of the awards focus on a specific sports star, others are for a team or a particular play or event that took place in the last calendar year.
Arguably, though, there’s three top awards: Best Male Athlete, Best Female Athlete and Best Team. When this year’s nominees were announced in late June, it was revealed Kris Bryant, Sidney Crosby, Michael Phelps and Russell Westbrook are competing for Male Athlete. The Female Athlete contenders are Simone Biles, Katie Ledecky, Candace Parker and Serena Williams. And the Team nominees include the Chicago Cubs, Clemson Tigers, Golden State Warriors, Pittsburgh Penguins, New England Patriots, South Caroline Gamecocks and the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team.
Most of the winners are determined through online voting, which was to remain open up until the start of tonight’s awards show. Only three honorees are known in advance of the broadcast. The Arthur Ashe Courage Award will recognize the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the Jimmy V Perseverance Award will go to Jarrius Robertson, and the Pat Tillman Award for Service will be bestowed upon Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro.
Gossip Cop will update the winners list as each award is announced beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern. In the meantime, check out all the categories below!
