This Summer, Vote Winter!

Move over, ladies of basketball! Winter sports are going mainstream, one bad-ass woman at a time!

On July 13, 2011, during a live telecast hosted by comedian Seth Meyers, ESPN will announce the winners of its annual ESPY Awards, honoring the best athletes and athletic performances in sports this year.

For one of the most prestigious awards, Best Female Athlete, two of the four nominees are winter sports stars. Alongside UConn basketball player Maya Moore, and WNBA-er Lauren Jackson, are snowboarder Kelly Clark and skier Lindsey Vonn (who won this award last year, the first time it has ever gone to a snowsports athlete).

Kelly Clark, as you might recall, is a 2-time Olympic medalist and has about as many X-Games medals as the Octomom has kids. Lindsey Vonn, who needs no introduction, also has several Olympic medals to her name, not to mention more than 40 first-place finishes in World Cup races of various ski disciplines.

The ESPY awards are decided by you, the fans. So take a moment to vote for your favorite female athlete — and for more than 20 other categories. And may the best woman win! (But do it quickly…voting ends July 9!)
