Stephen Curry, Serena Williams, Russell Westbrook, Odell Beckham Jr., Simone Biles, Kevin Durant, Laurie Hernandez, Keala Kennelly, Claressa Shields, Usain Bolt and this year’s host Russell Wilson took home a coveted orange mohawked blimp at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2017, the only show where kids celebrate their favorite athletes and the year’s most unforgettable sports moments. Helmed for a third straight year by Seattle Seahawks franchise quarterback and Super Bowl champion Russell Wilson, Kids’ Choice Sports 2017 was taped live Thursday, July 13, from UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, and will premiere Sunday, July 16, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) as a simulcast on Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons.

American competitive swimmer Michael Phelps was honored with the Legend Award at this year’s show in recognition of his world record-breaking achievements, unrivaled talent and outstanding sportsmanship in and out of the pool. Upon receiving his golden mohawked award, Phelps was doused from head to toe in glistening gold slime.

Throughout the show, three kids competed in Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2017 “Triple Shot Challenge” for an opportunity to each win $50,000. Klay Thompson, Abby Wambach and Dak Prescott served as coaches while fans cheered on Nate Simon, of Riverside, Calif., Evelyn Briggs of Woodinville, Wash., and Austin Fernandes, of Kent, Wash., as they each attempted to make their shot across basketball, soccer and football challenges.

The slimed-filled celebration also featured five grand-scale, sports-themed challenges:

  • DeAndre Jordan and Andre Drummond scaled Slime Mountain, battled obstacles and slid their way to victory and the Kids’ Choice Sports gold medal;
  • In the Nick Cannon-hosted Beats ‘N Seats challenge, Lindsey Vonn, P.K. Subban, Prince Fielder, Breanna Stewart and Gabby Douglas competed in the ultimate game of musical chairs;
  • In the Pedal Pop challenge, Von Miller, Skylar Diggins-Smith and Shaun White went head-to-head to see who can pedal the fastest and inflate a large slime-filled balloon until it pops;
  • Simone Biles, Emmanuel Sanders, Landon Collins, Aly Raisman, Cree Cicchino, Ella Anderson, Madisyn Shipman and Riele Downs participated in the KCS Relay, an obstacle-ridden race throughout the entire venue led by team captains Russell Wilson and Michael Strahan;
  • And Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, Kel Mitchell and Tony Cavalero faced off in the High Hoops challenge, a five-shot three-point contest that featured human basketball nets on wires.

In a special moment during Kids’ Choice Sports 2017, Nickelodeon presented two-time Olympic Gold medalist Simone Manuel with the first-ever #SeeHer Award, honoring her inspirational achievements which have broken down multiple barriers for women and girls. The #SeeHer movement aims to eliminate all gender bias by recognizing the importance of accurately portraying girls and women in television and advertising.

On Sunday, July 16th, kids will be able to play along throughout the broadcast by casting their votes to impact the show, taking polls to root for their favorite athletes, creating memes and engaging with photos and videos from the event. Nick.com/kids-choice-sports/ will provide the exclusive access to all the stars and athletes all night long.
