It is mid-July, which means it is time for the annual ESPYS in Los Angeles. ESPN's award show always attracts the biggest names in sports and entertainment, and a number of big names are presenting awards this year.

You can check out the full list from ESPN, but it includes John Elway, Chadwick Boseman, Jennifer Garner, Dan Marino and Russell Wilson, among others. Also included is Olympic skier Mikaela Shiffrin.

Shiffrin, 23, is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. She won gold in the slalom at the 2014 Winter Olmypics in Sochi at just 18 years old. This year, she won gold in the giant slalom in Pyeongchang.

She is nominated for two ESPYS as well as presenting an award.

Shiffrin is also making a name for herself off the slopes. She was featured in Maxim's Hot 100 for 2018.

The Vail, Colorado native is a name to know over the next few years. Here are some more photos of her.

You can catch the ESPYS on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
