From Peyton Manning’s cheeky jokes and making fun of himself, to Kevin Durant‘s pouting and plenty of tear-inducing emotional moments, we had an (almost) front row view of all the action.Once renown for his perfect passes, the former Colts and Broncos QB annihilated the audience with his swift jokes.The joke about Kevin Durant willing to jump to any winning team was hit with the audience but fell flat with the NBA Finals MVP, who was stony-faced when the cameras fell on him.[...] cos I am being forced to say it – I love that Tom Brady and Bill Belichick won their fifth Super Bowl.When NBA star DeAndre Jordan came to the stage, a die-hard Clippers fan stood up in a full Clippers gear and shouted “We love you DJ!” Mr. Clippers also seemed to really like Snoop Dogg — and wasn’t afraid to stand up and dance alone.While no famous face in the audience was safe, Peyton made fun of himself a lot too, with the best take-down being part of a skit about a retirement home called Sunset Acres.Announcements during in the commercial break included LeBron James winning Best NBA Player and Serena Williams nabbing Best Tennis Player, both of which scored huge rounds of applause even as guests made quick bathroom or bar breaks.Sparking laughter from the crowd even during the emotional presentation, it soon fell into a quiet hush seeing the extent of DT’s injuries after driving over a roadside bomb.DT’s walk onto the stage to collect his award — and a hug from Stewart — earned him the first standing ovation of the night. DT’s speech was followed by a special preview of “Dunkirk” featuring Cillian Murphy to keep with the military theme of the segment.With Los Angeles going through a heatwave, the normally steamy ESPYs red carpet was like a sweat box earlier in the day, with athletes and reporters melting in the sun.Jarrius “JJ” Robertson has turned into the sports world’s favorite little Saints and WWE fan thanks to his brave fight against liver cancer and multiple transplants. The pint-sized superstar is sharing the message of transplants through his endless energy and infectious smile, which he brought to the ESPYs stage.Sometimes the game doesn’t start ’til the second quarter, and that was true for ESPN’s NFL guru Adam Schefter, who came in with his family an hour into the show and played usher getting them comfortably seated for the remainder of the ESPYs. After losing his wife in a car crash just a few months ago, there was ripple of sympathy in the audience when Chris Berman came out to pay tribute to late SportsCenter host John Saunders.House band Crown and the M.O.B. added some smooth jazz moves to the commercial breaks — and even the king of product endorsements Peyton Manning appreciated that they were more fun to listen to than insurance ads.Manning’s announcement of Michelle Obama presenting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award left no one wondering about the political leanings of the crowd, which erupted into cheers, applause and with a single butt left in the seat as she took to the stage (yep, Mr. Clippers loves her too). Obama looked just as moved as she introduced another female trailblazer, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, for her formation of the Special Olympics — from its inception in Chicago in 1968 to the groundbreaking 2015 Summer Games in Los Angeles.The night before Special Olympics gold medalist Daina told TheWrap that she really hoped to share the stage with Obama — she got her wish, and stood side by side her icon.Sounding like a true politician like his uncle JFK, Shriver said: “We will not stop until there’s true equality,” earning a rousing applause worthy of a campaign rally.

“This will create a win-win-win situation for L.A., Paris and the entire Olympic movement,” the IOC president said, standing beside Garcetti.Macron brought his star quality to the Olympic capital city to open a bid campaign event that typically does not lure heads of state.The charismatic French president held an umbrella that helped keep his wife, Brigitte, dry on the walk up dozens of steps through landscaped gardens, past Olympic-themed statutes to a photo call at the entrance.After a one-hour visit, Macron talked of the Olympic Games’ place in a troubled world to “bring friendship between nations.”In a push to restore Russia’s sporting reputation after numerous doping scandals, the government has approved a plan to reclaim prize money and government grants from athletes who are found to be cheating.In a package of antidoping measures signed Monday, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered the Russian Sports Ministry and national sports federations to develop a scheme for “confiscating income and property from athletes, coaches, doctors and other specialists” involved in doping cases.The Sports Ministry previously has faced allegations from World Anti-Doping Agency investigators that its own staff covered up doping.Besides prize money from competitions, Russian athletes often get lavish rewards from the state, and many keep them even if banned as drug cheats.Gold medalists from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, for example, received $70,000 from a public-private fund, plus a white BMW SUV in a ceremony at the Kremlin.

Tuesday Jul 11, 2017
(AP) — A former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor pleaded guilty Tuesday to possessing child pornography, admitting he tried to get rid of the evidence last fall while police were investigating allegations that he had sexually assaulted young female athletes.Investigators in September discovered that Nassar's hard drives with thousands of illicit images had been thrown in the trash, as women and girls — mostly former gymnasts — were coming forward and saying he had molested them during appointments.Nassar's career began to collapse last summer after the Indianapolis Star reported how USA Gymnastics mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches.
