The celebration for the U.S women's soccer team over their World Cup title continued by winning the Best Team Award on Wednesday night. Abby Wombach accepted the award for the team that beat out the Golden State Warriors, Chicago Blackhawks, New England Patriots, the Ohio State football team, and the UConn women's basketball team.
Peyton Manning was also awarded for the Best Record-Breaking Performance for breaking Brett Favre's career touchdown mark. He did this by throwing his 509th career touchdown pass in a game against the San Francisco 49ers in October. He beat out Klay Thompson, Lauren Chamberlain, and Devin Hester.
LeBron James was awarded the Best Championship Performance ESPY for his play in the recent NBA Finals. He did not hesitate to recognize the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors, saying that the team inspired him.
Ronda Rousey not only took home the Best Fighter ESPY from Floyd Mayweather, but also the Best Female Athlete over Serena Williams, Lindsey Vonn, and Breanna Stewart.
Former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was also honored on Wednesday, as he was awarded the Icon Award. Jeter retired after last season and his sure to be a Hall of Famer soon. Boston's Ben Affleck stunned the crowd by presenting the award to the Red Sox rival.
Little Leaguer Mo'Ne Davis beat out Odell Beckham Jr., Jordan Spieth, and Cardale Jones for the ESPY for Best Breakthrough Performance. Davis was the first female pitcher in the Little League World Series last summer.
Other awards saw Warriors' Stephen Curry winning the Best NBA Player and Best Male Athlete Award. Curry won the NBA MVP and NBA title this past season, as his Golden State team downed LeBron James' Cleveland Cavalier team.
Mike Trout of the Angels won the Best MLB Player Award, snapping Miguel Cabrera's two-year streak for the award. Trout won the league MVP last season after being a runner-up the previous year, and won the last two All-Star game MVP's.
The NFL was recognized as well, as the Packers' Aaron Rodgers won the Best NFL Player award and the Patriots' Rob Gronkowski won Best Comeback Athlete. Gronkowski returned from ACL/MCL surgery to win the Super Bowl with the Tom Brady-led Pats. That game against the Seattle Seahawks won the Best Game ESPY.
Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks won the Best NHL Player ESPY after leading his team to the Stanley Cup last season. The Blackhawks beat out the New York Rangers in six games, but traded away star Patrick Sharp to the Dallas Stars. That puts more pressure on Toews to lead the way heading into the 2015-16 season.
Yet another night of celebrating the past year in the world of sports. The best athletes, teams, games, and performances that made everyone get on their feet. Honoring legacies and fights that will go down in history, exactly what the ESPYS is all about.
