WATCH: Michelle Obama Knocked It Out of the Park At Last Night’s ESPYs While Honoring Special Olympics Founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver

Former first lady Michelle Obama is still in charge.

How many other non-sports stars could earn perhaps the biggest applause at Wednesday’s ESPY Awards in Los Angeles?

After receiving a standing ovation upon being introduced, Obama gave a heartfelt speech as she presented the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage to Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver, posthumously.

“She knew that when we give others a chance to fulfill their greatest potential, we all win,” Obama said, per The Hill.

Obama described how Shriver, a champion for people with intellectual disabilities, created the Special Olympics in the 1960s and turned the event into a global phenomenon.

“Through her passionate service she made the world more welcoming,” Obama said. The former fab FLOTUS also got props for slaying in a cutout dress by Cushnie et Ochs.

We think Shriver’s son, Tim, who accepted the award on her behalf, summed up Obama’s presence best: “Once a great first lady, still a great first lady.”
