Simone Biles came out with two big victories at the 2017 ESPY Awards held Wednesday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, taking home awards for Best Female U.S. Olympic Athlete and Best Female Athlete.
Last year, Biles was in contention for the Best Female Athlete award, but WNBA star Breanna Stewart secured the title. Biles accepted her award from presenter Abby Wambach, saying:
Ever since Rio, it has been an amazing year and the best part of it all was meeting the young people. I want to thank you all for believing in me, it means the world to me. So, thank you.
What a night for Biles!
