What do you get when you combine a three-time Super Bowl champion, an Olympic gold medal skier, the biggest names in sports and gallons of green slime?

A sticky mess — and the finale competition at the Nickelodeon “Kids’ Choice Sports 2019.”

The annual sports extravaganza — that took place last month at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica — will air Saturday, Aug. 10 at 8 p.m. ET, and TheWrap has an exclusive video of the messiest highlights, which you can check out above.

Hosted by former Super Bowl champion and two-time Emmy Award winner Michael Strahan, this year’s show featured two teams of sports stars competing in challenges that tested their athletic skills in the stickiest of surroundings.

Captained by former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn, the all-star rosters included Shaun White, Nyjah Huston and Vonn’s NFL player boyfriend, P.K. Subban.

The first-ever “Kids’ Choice Sports Championship” was a mega-competition made up of five grand-scale, sports-themed challenges that spanned the entire show and culminated in a nail-biting final showdown. One team pulled off the biggest comeback since Super Bowl LI — but you’ll have to watch the show to see who came out victorious.

Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, Alex Morgan of the World Cup-winning U.S. women’s national soccer team, snowboarder Chloe Kim and golfer Tiger Woods were among the winners of the 2019 awards.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was the only other nominee to win more than once, taking home two prizes: Best Cannon and Favorite Football Player. TB12 celebrate his feat during the show by throwing a perfect pass from a video message to Gronk… who then proceeded to spike it, of course.

Meanwhile, 13-time NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade received the Legend Award and was subsequently doused in a river of gold slime while accepting the prize, but not before giving his watch to wife Gabrielle Union for safe keeping.

Fresh off their World Cup victory, USWNT star Megan Rapinoe won the Generation Change Award.

Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2019 will air Saturday, Aug. 10, at 8 p.m. ET as a simulcast on Nickelodeon, TeenNick and Nicktoons.
