Russell Wilson served as host of this year’s Kids Choice Sports Awards at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, California. The ceremony was held on Thursday and Russell’s stepson, Future Zahir, joined him on the red carpet.

“Super excited and honored to three-peat and host Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2017,” Russell said before Thursday’s event. “Kids get ready… three times the slime coming your way,” he added.


Several celebrities came to see all of the action onstage. Chris Vincent, Corey Brewer, and Datone Jones were three of many stars who attended the awards ceremony with their families. They were not disappointed as Russell and several others were slimed in front of everyone and some of the nation’s favorite athletes were given awards.

Simone Biles was honored as the “Favorite Female Athlete” while Serena Williams was deemed the “Queen of Swag.” Williams was given the “Best Cannon” Award as well. Russell Wilson was also honored with the “King of Swag” title. Claressa Shields, who a phenomenal pro boxer, was labeled as the “Biggest Powerhouse.” Quite accurate, we must say.

The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards is the “only kids’ show celebrating the world’s best athletes and epic sports moments.” Check out an encore airing of the show on Sunday, July 16, 2017, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), and on Monday, July 17, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
