Only one surfer has been nominated to receive one of the prestigious, fan-based awards at the 2018 ESPYS presented by Capital One.
And that surfer is Stephanie Gilmore.
Though she failed to capture another Women’s CT World Title during the 2017 season, the six-time World Champion’s recent performances in competitions, exhibitions, photo/video shoots and freesurfs across the world have earned her a nomination for “Best Female Action Sports Athlete,” where she’s up against American snowboarders Chloe Kim and Jamie Anderson and American skateboarder Brighton Zeuner. Gilmore is currently leading the WSL Women’s CT ratings after a dominant performance at the Corona Open J-Bay.
Known as the “Oscars of the sports world,” the ESPYS are decided by the public, via sports fans voting in their online polls.
You can watch the ESPYS, hosted by Danica Patrick, tomorrow night, July 18th at 8pm PST, on ABC, or catch the broadcast live on Watch ESPN.
