Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry received the best male athlete award at tonight’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2015 awards, his second such honor in two days.

Curry won a similar award at Wednesday’s ESPY Awards. He also won the Clutch Player of the Year and Sickest Moves awards at the Kids’ Choice Sports awards.

Soccer star Alex Morgan won the best female athlete award, an honor that went to MMA fighter Ronda Rousey at the ESPY Awards. Rousey was not among the seven nominees in the category at the Kids’ Choice Sports, which are organized by the Nickelodeon cable network.

Rousey was nominated in three categories at the Kids’ Choice Sports awards, but did not win in any. She was among the nominees for the Sickest Moves, Queen of Swag, losing to tennis champion Serena Williams, and biggest powerhouse, losing to Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.

Winners were determined by online voting. The awards were handed out at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in a ceremony hosted by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter received the Legend Award, in recognition of “his unmatched talent, integrity and sportsmanship on and off the field,” making him a worldwide role model, according to Nickelodeon.

Jonathan Clark, a 14-year-old from Monrovia, made a half-court shot on his first attempt, receiving $50,000. Roee Maor, a 13-year-old from Demarest, New Jersey received $50,000 for hitting the crossbar of a soccer goal from 30 yards away on his first try.
