The summertime is all about spending time outside, getting up and getting active; and there’s no better way to do so than by playing some sports! One of the most anticipated, sports-filled events of the summer – the 2019 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports made its way to the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California for another unforgettable awards show. This year’s show was taped on July 11, 2019 and is set to air on Saturday, August 10th at 8:00 PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons. Sports aren’t just a great way to stay healthy and have some fun, sports also help people learn what it’s like to be a team-player, learn the importance of working hard, staying focused and having sportsmanship both on and off the field.

Nickelodeon brought extra excitement to this year’s awesome awards show with tons of epic challenges, a terrific performance and a whole lot of slime! The sensational event was hosted by none other than Super Bowl Champion and Emmy Award winner Michael Strahan, who brought so much energy to the Kids’ Choice Sports stage. The event kicked-off with the first-ever Kids’ Choice Sports Championship where two, star-studded teams went head-to-head in some adrenaline-filled and heart-racing challenges. “Team Slime Slammers was captained by Lindsey Vonn with Alysa Liu, Kel Mitchell, Shaun White, Trae Young and Nyjah Huston. Team Orange Crunch was led by Rob Gronkowski with David Dobrik, Laurie Hernandez, Olivia Moultrie, Ben Simmons and P.K. Subban” (source: press release). The teams took part in five, thrilling challenges listed below:

  • All-Star Gauntlet: Working to build a 6-foot-tall foam finger puzzle, the teams were tasked with throwing pies through basketball nets, crawling through a batting cage, catching giant fish in a sea of slippery critters, knocking down puzzle pieces held by giant Michael Strahan targets and climbing a 30-foot wall.

 

  • Summer Smash N’ Splash: One lucky kid from the audience joined each team for this wet and slimy challenge.  Each team swam in a pool of balls to find the volleyballs needed to hit targets that triggered a slime shower which doused their respective kid.

 

  • Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader Bungee Dance Challenge: Each team captains’ dance knowledge was put to the test by game show host John Cena.  Tethered together via a bungee rope, the captains had to reach the buzzer and perform their best dance moves with each question answered correctly with the help of brainy fifth graders, Jamir and Saya.

 

  • Pillow Fight Fight Night: David Dobrik and Kel Mitchell faced off in the ring for a pillow fight like no other. The challengers’ pillow-fighting abilities were judged for style, accuracy and power.

 

  • Super Slime Showdown: In the final challenge, team captains used stationary bikes to pump out slime that their teammates had to catch in order to fill slime tanks at the finish line. The first team that filled their tank and slimed themselves won the championship.
