From Maggie Calhoun writing at the New York Post:

Caitlyn Jenner called for acceptance on Wednesday night as she delivered a powerful speech at the ESPY Awards.

Jenner’s segment began with a montage narrated by “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm. “People were looking for a hero to believe in and there he was,” Hamm said as images of Jenner participating in the Olympic games played. “Bruce Jenner made patriotism cool again.”

As the montage wrapped, the camera panned to a teary eyed Jenner in the audience.

“Wow. I have to talk after that?” she said as she took the stage in a curve-hugging cream-colored wrap gown by Versace.

“Thank you so much. It is so wonderful to be here tonight. Now the last few months have been a whirlwind of so many different experiences and emotions, but to tell you the truth it seems like every time I turn around in life I’m putting myself in high-pressure situations,” she opened.

“I’ve never felt more pressure. Picking out this outfit — OK girls, I get it!” she joked. “And next the ‘Fashion Police.’ Please be kind on me, I’m new at this.”
