Caitlyn Jenner, Arthur Ashe Courage Award Controversy: Does Noah Galloway Deserve It More?

Caitlyn Jenner will be receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs in July, but is she the most deserving?

Ever since it was announced that Jenner would be honored during the show, people have been debating whether or not she was the best choice to receive the award. According to Athlon Sports, social media users have been in a heated argument about this, many feeling as though the award should go to someone like Noah Galloway or Lauren Hill.

Galloway is a U.S. Army veteran. He lost two of his limbs while fighting in the Iraq War. He was given a second chance at life, and most recently competed on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars (he danced himself to third place with the help of Sharna Burgess).

There is a rumor floating around the internet that Galloway was actually the “runner up” to Caitlyn Jenner, thanks to sports writer Gerry Callahan.

According to The Washington Post, however, this isn’t the case. Galloway didn’t “lose” to Jenner. In fact, there wasn’t information that suggested that Galloway was even in the running, but he should have been according to thousands of fans.

Lauren Hill has also been mentioned by several people. Hill raised $1 million for cancer research while battling terminal brain cancer. She proved to be an inspiration to thousands of people and passed away on April 10.

Caitlyn Jenner is certainly deserving of such an award for bravely coming out to the world as a woman after 65 years living as a man (Bruce Jenner). As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Jenner has a lot of supporters too.

Do you think Caitlyn should be honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs? Or should that honor have gone to someone like Noah Galloway or Lauren Hill? Sound off in the comments below.
