Where can you find some of the biggest and most iconic sports stars all under one roof taking on some of the most fun-filled (and slimiest challenges!), a place where some awesome kids can take on terrific, sports-inspired challenges with the help and coaching of the athletes they admire most, a place where so many outstanding Nick stars join together to celebrate a day of getting up, getting active, and recognizing the extraordinary sports stars we love the most – all of the epic-ness and sheer fan-demonioum happens at the one, the only Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports! Nickelodeon never fails at bringing out the best of the best – from hit, animated and live-action shows to the greatest award shows on this planet, so, needless to say, we all knew that this year’s Kids’ Choice Sports was bound to be the best one yet, and it surely was! The 2017 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports had its special taping yesterday, July 13th at the UCLA Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, California. The phenomenal award show is set to air on Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons on Sunday, July 16th at 8:00 PM ET / PT.

No amount of words can ever be enough to describe just how stupendous the 2017 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports was. There’s some indescribable, exciting feeling in the air that is quite like nothing else every time the Kids’ Choice Sports makes it way on over to Los Angeles for an unforgettable, sports-filled day. There were so many excellent highlights at this year’s renowned and prestigious award show. The Kids’ Choice Sports was hosted by none other than the sensational, Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, who returned to the KCS stage for his third year in a row as host. Russell Wilson always manages to bring extra excitement every time he hosts the awesome award show.

The orange carpet was rolled out and iconic athletes made their way down the carpet – from Michael Phelps to Shaun White, Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Odell Beckham Jr, Skylar Diggins-Smith and many others. Before you know it, attendees, athletes, and celebrities made their way inside the UCLA Pauley Pavilion to see the out of this world KCS stage – it truly was one of kind and the greatest stage you could ever imagine at an award show. Many outstanding athletes took on some remarkable challenges – something you can only see happen at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports! DeAndre Jordan and Andre Drummond made their way up Slime Mountain, challenged their way through some obstacles, and slid down a slide full of slime. Another fun challenge was hosted by the one and only, Nick Cannon. The Beats ‘N Seats challenge put Lindsey Vonn, P.K. Subban, Prince Fielder, Breanna Stewart, and Gabby Douglas up against each other for an intense game of musical chairs. Who won? You’ll just have to find out by tuning in to the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports this Sunday!

Athletes Shaun White, Von Miller and Skylar Diggins-Smith got pedaling during the Pedal Pop Challenge, where they had to test their pedaling skills to see who can pedal the fastest and inflate a giant balloon filled with slime until it pops. Sports stars and Nickelodeon stars joined together for some other great challenges. Joining in on the fun was Simone Biles, Emmanuel Sanders, Landon Collins, Aly Raisman, Cree Cicchino, Ella Anderson, Madisyn Shipman, Riele Downs, Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, Kel Mitchell and Tony Cavalero.

Another spectacular highlight from the event was when the admirable, two-time Olympic Gold medalist, Simone Manuel was awarded with the first ever #SeeHer award for her history-making achievements and her indescribable talent. The #SeeHer movement is aimed to put an end to all gender biases and accurately portray women and girls in television and advertising.

The awe-inspiring award show ended off in a golden way with Olympic hero, Michael Phelps being honored with the “Legend Award.” It’s clear to see that Michael Phelps truly defines what it is like to be a legend. He’s worked endlessly to reach his goals and encourage everyone that anything is possible when you set your mind to it. Michael Phelps has made a splash in the pool and a big splash in all of our hearts and he has impacted the lives of many in a way like no other. Michael Phelps is beyond deserving of the “Legend Award” and today and every day, we celebrate having someone like Michael Phelps as an inspiration to all. After receiving the coveted blimp, Michael Phelps was doused with some golden slime – a perfect way to end a wonderful night.

So many fantastic athletes were in attendance at the event including Shawne Merriman, Julian Edelman, Dak Prescott, Abby Wambach, and many more.
