As an Olympic speed skater, Apolo Anton Ohno is no stranger to setting records. The eight-time medalist became the Winter Olympics' most decorated athlete during the 2010 games. But Ohno set a new gold standard at Saturday's (March 27) 23rd annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, catapulting into the slime world-record books.
For the show's grand finale, the "Dancing With the Stars" champ strapped himself into the Slime Slingshot, a human catapult that would sling him 60 yards in the air, through a goal post and into a small pool of gooey, green slime.
Giving the thumbs-up sign to Slime Stunt Correspondent John Cena, Ohno "flew" through the air, cannon-balling into the waiting vat. Submerged for several seconds, Ohno rose, splashing slime on the onlookers surrounding the pool.
Following the stunt, Ohno gave this detailed play-by-play: "Right here, I start peeing my pants," he joked, reliving climbing into the catapult. "Then I'm thinking, 'I can see my house from here.' Finally, I'm thinking, 'Would it have killed them to heat up the slime pool a little bit?' "
Ohno was one of several famous faces to be doused in Nickelodeon's signature green slime, including "Twilight" star Jackson Rathbone, singer Katy Perry and "Date Night" co-stars Tina Fey and Steve Carell.
Despite his messy appearance, Ohno tweeted, "That was fun ... KCA is the place to be!!" following the ceremony.
