From one great Olympian to another.

Two-time gold medalist Abby Wambach will present fellow Caitlyn Jenner with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award Wednesday night, ESPN says.

Wambach, 35, is a lesbian and memorably kissed her wife after the U.S. National Women's Soccer Team won the World Cup in its epic matchup with Japan.

The pairing is seen as another significant moment of acceptance for LGBT Americans.

Jenner, 65, won a gold medal for the 1976 Olympic decathlon when she was known as Bruce Jenner. She came out as transgender earlier this year.

The ESPYs are the annual awards given by the sports network, ESPN.

The courage award is named for late tennis great Arthur Ashe, a three-time tennis Grand Slam winner, and is awarded to sports stars who have gone through major personal challenges.

The ESPYs air Wednesday night at 8 p.m. on ABC.
