The winners of Nickelodeon's Kids’ Choice Sports 2017 are:

They are, simply put, the best athletes of the year. Driving the offense or barreling through the toughest defense, they never cease to amaze fans with their athleticism, moves and mastery of the game. In short, the nominees for these two categories represent the best male and female athletes currently competing in traditional sports.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Soccer, Real Madrid C.F. La Liga)
Dale Earnhardt Jr. (NASCAR)
Kris Bryant (MLB, Chicago Cubs)
LeBron James (NBA, Cleveland Cavaliers)
Stephen Curry (NBA, Golden State Warriors)
Tom Brady (NFL, New England Patriots)

Alex Morgan (NWSL, Olympique Lyonnais)
Katie Ledecky (Competitive Swimmer)
Mikaela Shiffrin (Skiing, US Ski Team)
Nneka Ogwumike (WNBA, Los Angeles Sparks)
Serena Williams (WTA)
Simone Biles (Professional Artistic Gymnast) - WINNER

All professional athletes do incredible things, but there are a select few who also look incredible while they’re doing it. The male and female nominees in this category are the best dressed and most stylin’ athletes off the court. The King of Swag and the Queen of Swag are two separate awards that will be presented together.

Cam Newton (NFL, Carolina Panthers)
Cristiano Ronaldo (Soccer, Real Madrid C.F.)
DeAndre Jordan (NBA, Los Angeles Clippers)
Rickie Fowler (Professional Golfer)
Russell Wilson (NFL, Seattle Seahawks)
Von Miller (NFL, Denver Broncos)

Caroline Wozniacki (WTA)
Danica Patrick (NASCAR)
Lizzie Armanto (Professional Skateboarder)
Serena Williams (WTA)
Skylar Diggins (WNBA, Dallas Wings)
Torah Bright (Professional Snowboarder)

Some of the most incredible arms in sports belong to athletes from the worlds of baseball, football and tennis. This category honors the outfielders, pitchers, catchers, quarterbacks and tennis players with the strongest arms in the game.

Aaron Rodgers (NFL, Green Bay Packers)
Andy Murray (Professional Tennis Player)
Justin Verlander (MLB, Detroit Tigers)
Matt Ryan (NFL, Atlanta Falcons)
Max Scherzer (MLB, Washington Nationals)
Serena Williams (WTA)

This award honors those players that are an undeniable force on the field and on the court. Like a freight train or a Mack Truck, these athletes have so much power in their play that they cannot be stopped. They are the sluggers who hit the farthest homeruns, the tennis players with the fastest serves, the power forwards that slam dunk with such force they can shatter a backboard, the running backs that move with such power that it takes an entire team to stop them, and are the most unstoppable players in sports this year.

Claressa Shields (Professional Boxer)
David Ortiz (MLB, Boston Red Sox)
DeMarcus Cousins (NBA, New Orleans Pelicans)
Mike Trout (MLB, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim)
Von Miller (NFL, Denver Broncos)

Teammates rely on these athletes to make the plays when it counts the most. Their participation is clutch to the success of their teams, and the fans know it. The nominees in this category come from a variety of sports and alter the game just by being on the field.

Alex Morgan (NWSL, Olympique Lyonnais)
Katie Ledecky (Competitive Swimmer)
Mike Trout (MLB, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim)
Russell Westbrook (NBA, Oklahoma City Thunder) - WINNER
Sergio Garcia (Professional Golfer)
Sidney Crosby (NHL, Pittsburgh Penguins)
Stephen Curry (NBA, Golden State Warriors)
Tom Brady (NFL, New England Patriots)

They flip, fly and soar their way into the highlight reels of the X Games and other action sports competitions on the regular, and kids can’t get enough. They’re the death-defying athletes of slopestyle, the BMX racers or the skateboarders and surfers who risk life and limb every day to accomplish the impossible.

Alise Post (Professional BMX Racer)
Connor Fields (Professional BMX Racer)
Hailey Langland (Professional Snowboarder)
Keala Kennelly (Professional Surfer)
Lizzie Armanto (Professional Skateboarder)
Mark McMorris (Professional Snowboarder)
Nyjah Huston (Professional Skateboarder)

The excitement surrounding a new sports prospect can be incredible, especially when that prospect starts to deliver on the anticipation of greatness. The nominees in this category represent the first or second year pros who have lived up to the hype–in other words, the newbie that is most likely to succeed.

Breanna Stewart (WNBA, Seattle Storm)
Corey Seager (MLB, Los Angeles Dodgers)
Dak Prescott (NFL, Dallas Cowboys)
Dario Šarić (NBA, Philadelphia 76ers)
Laurie Hernandez (Professional Artistic Gymnast)
Simone Manuel (Competitive Swimmer)

Every season has its most-talked-about, spectacular or awe-inspiring catches and saves. The nominees in this category represent the MLB, NFL and NHL athletes who have made the most unbelievable, highlight reel-worthy catches and incredible saves of the year.

Adrián Beltré (MLB, Texas Rangers)
Antonio Brown (NFL, Pittsburgh Steelers)
Braden Holtby (NHL, Washington Capitals)
Ian Kinsler (MLB, Detroit Tigers)
Julian Edelman (NFL, New England Patriots)
Odell Beckham Jr. (NFL, New York Giants)

This award honors those players that live life in the fast lane. Whether it’s running, driving, or swimming, these athletes bring the fast and furious to the race. They are the lightening quick speed demons that won’t stop until they’re in first, and the rest of the competition eats their dust.

Allyson Felix (Professional Track & Field Athlete)
Dale Earnhardt Jr. (NASCAR)
Danica Patrick (NASCAR)
Jimmie Johnson (NASCAR)
Katie Ledecky (Competitive Swimmer)
Lewis Hamilton (Formula 1 Racing)
Usain Bolt (Professional Track & Field Athlete)

Professional athletes make it look so easy that sometimes fans forget the sheer agility required to play with the best of the best–until they see the nominees of this category do their thing. They’re the soccer players with the mind-blowing dribble, the hockey players who can do amazing things on skates, the football players who dazzle us with their fancy footwork, or the basketball players with the best ball handling skills.

Carli Lloyd (NWSL, Manchester City)
James Harden (NBA, Houston Rockets)
Kevin Durant (NBA, Golden State Warriors)
Kyrie Irving (NBA, Cleveland Cavaliers)
Le’Veon Bell (NFL, Pittsburgh Steelers)
Patrick Kane (NHL, Chicago Blackhawks)
