VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE: Olympic Medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad Interview With Alexisjoyvipaccess At The 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports!

20 Jul


She has made history in a countless amount of ways, she has broken barriers and has inspired an endless amount of people to follow their dreams – she’s the legendary Ibtihaj Muhammad. If you looked up the word “admirable” in the dictionary, you would definitely see Ibtihaj Muhammad’s name as a part of the definition. She made history as the first woman to wear a hijab while competing in the Olympics for Team USA. She also became the first female Muslim-American to win a medal at the Olympics. Then again, admirable is truly an understatement for someone as great as Ibtihaj Muhammad. The extraordinary Ibtihaj Muhammad has proven that she could do it all. She has worked tirelessly to get to where she is today. Ibtihaj Muhammad is a stupendous fencer who has and continues to make the USA so proud to call her ours. Through her work, Ibtihaj Muhammad has managed to break societal and cultural norms. She has shown to the world that when you set your mind onto something, when you are determined and when you work hard enough to never let anything get in your way – you too can be a champion like Ibtihaj Muhammad.

In addition to being an inspiring athlete, Ibtihaj Muhammad also has her own clothing line called, Louella. Through her collection, Ibtihaj Muhammad brings chic and sophisticated items to the modest fashion industry. Ibtihaj Muhammad is not only a powerful fencer, but she is also the genius behind a fashion line – there is nothing that this phenomenal woman can’t do. In fact, Ibtihaj Muhammad even wrote her very own book titled, Proud and she will be embarking on a book tour in a few days to promote the empowering story. Ibtihaj Muhammad has influenced so many that Mattel’s Barbie even created a doll modeled after her as a part of their “Shero” collection. We certainly are so proud of Ibtihaj Muhammad – of the life-changing, Olympic hero she is to all.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had a magnificent time covering the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports and had the greatest honor of interviewing the sensational Ibtihaj Muhammad at the event. Ibtihaj Muhammad talked exclusively with Alexisjoyvipaccess all about what a typical day is like for an Olympian like her training for her sport, who the MVP is in her life, what advice she would give to those who would want to follow in her footsteps and go after their dreams and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview. The spectacular Ibtihaj Muhammad even took on a fun “Slime or Save” speed round and revealed whether she would slime or save herself, LeBron James and Kids’ Choice Sports host, Chris Paul – hear what she had to say in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview below. Thanks for the exceptional interview, Ibtihaj Muhammad!

This year’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports filmed at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California on July 19, 2018 and will air tonight, July 20th at 8:00 PM ET / PT on Nickelodeon. Houston Rockets’ point guard and former NBA All-Star MVP Chris Paul was the host with the most for this magnificent event. He brought his awesome skills both on and off the court to the award show and he definitely put a big smile on everyone’s face being one terrific host that can’t be beat.

It’s hard not to get star-struck with all of the iconic sports celebs that made their way onto the orange carpet at this year’s Kids’ Choice Sports. The most decorated Olympian of all time, none other than Michael Phelps (who was last year’s winner of the Legend Award at the Kids’ Choice Sports) returned this year with his lovely wife and son, Boomer and he joined in on an exciting challenge during the award show. Other excellent sports stars who attended the event included Michael Strahan, Shaun White, Ronda Rousey, Lindsey Vonn, Russell Wilson, P.K. Subban, Travis Kelce, Chloe Kim, Alex Morgan, Antonio Brown, Alex and Maia Shibutani, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Mikaela Shiffrin and many others.

In addition, the cast of Nickelodeon’s Knight Squad: Lilimar, Owen Joyner, Daniella Perkins and Amarr Wooten were in attendance at the event and had a blast joining the award show.

Tucker gave the classic Musical Chairs dance game a sporty twist, dancing popular viral dances in the Shake Zone and breaking funny and messy items in the Break Zone, ending with a race through a sneaker box wall to be the first to hit the buzzer and win the chance to present the first award.


  • The JoJo Siwa-hosted Battle Carts Royale challenge tested the throwing accuracy of Winter Olympics medalists Shaun White, Chloe Kim, Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani as teams of two raced against each other in shopping carts, tossing out t-shirts to the audience in a race to hit a final target and trigger the dunking of their Nickelodeon Knight Squad teammate into a tank holding 1500 gallons of slime.


  • In the Slime Dunk challenge, two real kid superfans got the opportunity to shoot free throws in a one-on-one challenge, for the chance to dunk their basketball idols, Candace Parker and Isaiah Thomas, into six-foot-high slime-filled dunk tanks!


  • And to celebrate the return of Double Dare, Liza Koshy and Marc Summers brought the iconic Double Dare obstacle course to the Kids’ Choice Sports. In a special end-of-show moment, host Chris Paul fulfilled a childhood fantasy, running the super-sized and super messy course in a head-to-head showdown against the most decorated Olympian in history, Michael Phelps.
