Every year the American broadcast television network, ABC, hosts this amazing sports awards show, and each year athletes, celebrities and sports affiliates around the globe turn up in celebration of yearly sporting excellence.
This year’s event was hosted by American football quarterback, Peyton Manning, who’s attempt at being humorous left many in the audience stunned – especially a very upset Kevin Durant. Despite the initial awkwardness, the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles was filled to the brim with excitement and anticipation.
Some of the world’s much-loved athletes went home with a few big wins this year. Basketball player, Russell Westbrook, took home the coveted Best Male Athlete award, and was applauded by his very proud wife, Nina. The youthful American artistic gymnast, Simone Biles, was proudly awarded Best Female Athlete of the year. Other celebratory accolades include the Icon Award, which went to sportscaster Vin Scully, and the Record-Breaking Performance award – taken home by the incredible Michael Phelps.
The red carpet was also filled with some magical moments, as celebrity couples and some singles slayed the fashion game in true Hollywood style. This year’s fashion offerings included blue hues, a few beautiful white gowns and shimmery accents. There were definitely a few fashion tips to pick up on for next season.
