MIchelle Obama at ESPY Awards 2017

Former United States First Lady, was greeted by a standing ovation when she honoured the late Eunice Shriver at the ESPYs on yesternight, July 12.

“I am here tonight to honour a legend. A woman who believed everyone has something to contribute and everyone deserves to push themselves to find out what they’re made of and to compete and win”, the former first lady said, honouring Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

“She knew that when we give others a chance to fulfil our greatest potential, we all win,” she continued.

Shriver, who is the sister of former President John F. Kennedy, died in 2009.

However, the award was accepted on behalf of her son Timothy, who is the chairman of the Special Olympics.

This is the second award show appearance Obama has made recently. She honoured Chance the Rapper in a video message at the BET Awards last month for his humanitarian work.
