Special Project

From the 12th Annual Shorty Awards Best in Sports

Social media allows athletes to showcase their massive impact on the world when they aren’t playing the sport we fell in love with them for. Whether it’s for a groundbreaking sponsorship, speaking their mind on social issues, or simply showing off their personalities, these stars are proving they are more than just athletes. While there are a lot of incredible athletes out there, these twelve stood out from the field.

If you’ve worked with a great athlete for a social media project enter the Best in Sports Shorty Award.
