A-list celebrities joined the accomplished athletes on the red carpet, all with positive energy as they spoke highly of the professional skier. Guests in attendance included NFL stars Terrell Owens, Clay and Casey Matthews, NBA star Kris Humphries, Dancing With The Stars’ Cheryl Burke, and The Ski Channel founder, Steve Bellamy, who has had the pleasure of watching the talented athlete rise to the top over the years.
“Lindsey was the shining star of The Ski Channel’s film, “The Story,” documenting some of the world’s best skiing and the lives that have impacted (and been impacted by) the sport,” Bellamy shared. ”Lindsey is one of the most poised and charismatic athletes, beautiful inside and out. Her accomplishments in skiing go beyond the race course, and she clearly deserves the ESPY Best Female Athlete nomination.”
The Ski Channel asked DJ Spider as he entered the building, what the celebration would entail: “I heard Lindsey loves hip-hop, so I’m going to get everyone up and dancing with her to her favorite beats.” He fulfilled the task, as the stars enjoyed the dance floor and kicked off the ESPY week in style and good company.
