It seems that once changing the Olympic history is not enough for a person who is now changing the course of his own history. I am talking about none other than the famous and prominently appreciated transgender Caitlyn Jenner.

Caitlyn Jenner takes the Ashe Courage Award at ESPYs

These days her favorite hobby is to be in spot light and constantly in the media or social network gossips. Her true hardships were rewarded last night as he was presented the Ashe Courage Award at ESP.

Caitlyn Jenner raised on a stage along with the country’s major sports stars and personalities Wednesday and delivered a test to accept transgender people and they did with open heart.

The biggest gossip on social media this time is Caitlyn Jenner accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs on Wednesday night while advising taking for others who are transgender.

She established a stand-up ovation which she well earned from the sporting world’s prime stars after her 10-minute talking throughout the annual awards idolizing the year’s top athletes and some hard but sweet moments. According to her statement:

“This is one of the toughest things in my life and this transition has been tougher on me than anything I can picture. No one could think of what I am going through but it is your support that helped me pass this time.”

Her process of becoming a woman was completely and widely televised in an interview with Diane Sawyer in April on ABC. It cannot be wrong to say that one of the most distinguished Olympians of all time and an astonishing former Bruce Jenner told the athletes in the crowd that how they behave on transgender issues matters for thousands of young people who are transgender and struggling. She urged the athletes to endorse acceptance.

On the mega event above the magnificent podium Jenner thanked everyone with the bottom of her heart and she truly appreciated all the effort and value others are giving to her. She personally thanked Sawyer whom she called a friend.

She stated that: “The trans teenagers Mercedes Williamson, if you remember she was murdered in Alabama and Sam Taub who took his own life in Michigan.

These are both tragic incidents. They were getting bullied and if you do not know they’re getting beaten up. They’re getting killed and some of them are committing suicide.”

It was truly breathe taking moment for the fans when Abby Wambach of the U.S. soccer team who won the Women’s World Cup presented the trophy to Jenner.
