Clark Gregg attended the ESPN Humanitarian Award Ceremony which was recorded on July 12, 2021 in NYC. He presented the Marvel's Earth Mightiest Athletes Award.
This award was new this year, Marvel’s Earth’s Mightiest Athletes, a collective of inspiring athletes that mirror Marvel heroes with their extraordinary abilities on the field, and their commitment to making a positive impact off of it. Not only do these honorees reflect the values of Muhammad Ali’s sports humanitarian shown in this year’s awards, but each has delivered for the community in a way that’s aligned with the super-powered spirit of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The amazing athletes who was awarded this are:
Francis Ngannou (UFC)
“When I started, I had nothing. Nothing. I needed everything. But when you start [to earn money], you start collecting things: I want this, I want this, I want that. The purpose is not collecting things, though. The purpose is to do something great. Finish the dream you started…”
Russel Wilson (NFL)
“Captain America possesses the same never-give-up spirit that I aspire to achieve every day, especially when it comes to helping kids”
Two other amazing athletes who won this award are Donovan Mitchell (NBA) & Julie Ertz (US Soccer)
