The 2021 ESPYS Awards: Full Results & Highlights

Updated: Dec 4, 2023

Since 1993 the ESPYS Award, which is short for Excellence in Sports Performance, has become the heartbeat and voice for all sports. It is an annual ceremony that recognizes individual and team athletic achievement and other sports-related performances during the calendar year.

This year superstar actor Anthony Mackie, who started in films such as

Million Dollar Baby, Captain America, and The Hate U Give hosted the ceremony live from The Rooftop At Pier 17 at South Street Seaport in New York City on Saturday, July 10th.

While Mackie hosted on the main stage, Ally Love, Brooklyn Nets Host, Peleton Instructor, and Founder of Love Squad, captured all the behind-the-scenes interviews and kept the energy alive all night even through the rain and sunshine.

It was a plea

sure and an honor to be in the same space of the athletes that have made their marks in sports history. I got to see stars like Sha’Carri Richardson, Naomi Osa

ka, Sasha Banks, Bianca Belair, Sabrina Ionescu, Zaila Avant-Garde, Da Baby, LeMelo Ball, Tracy Morgan, Taye Diggs, YBN Cordae, and Chase Young.
