ESPY Presenters Who is presenting at the 2017 ESPYs list of presenters 2017 ESPY Awards

With its demure length and long sleeves, Obama's ESPYs look isn't such a departure from her White House wardrobe-but it's just enough of a deviation, with its sleek silhouette and asymmetrical cutouts, paired with teetering high heels, to mark an evolution in the former first lady's style.

Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver will be posthumously honored Wednesday night with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2017 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.

Shriver's son, Timothy, who serves as chair for the Special Olympics, accepted the award on his mom's behalf. "She knew that when we give others a chance to fulfill our greatest potential, we all win".

She ended her speech by stressing the need to make the world "more inclusive, welcoming and fair" for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity and gender.

"This movement she created over 50 years is not done yet", he said. And judging by the rapturous applause and standing ovation she received, she's been much missed.

The former first lady presented a special prize at the ESPY Awards, an annual ceremony presented by USA television network ABC, and previously ESPN.

"Special Olympics athletes are not a cause".

Shriver-the mother of journalist Maria Shriver and sister of President John F. Kennedy-founded the Special Olympics in 1968.

When silence did eventually fall she explained: 'I am here tonight to honour a remarkable woman'. "She would have been so honored that you are here for her tonight as we all are", he added, according to ABC News. "She's here in anybody who says let's play unified and let's live unified, too", Shriver continued. She was inspired to start the Special Olympics because her sister Rosemary was born with intellectual disabilities.
