Adam and Mikaela tackled the course as they slid through an open mouth and dove through the treacherous ringer. But it was the iconic Double Dare Nose that Adam couldn't pick fast enough.

It all ended with a group sliming – hopefully Adam and Mikaela can wash the slime out of their hair before hitting the ESPYs red carpet tonight!

For years, this is how the Olympic fame cycle has worked: Athlete travels to far-flung international location to compete on behalf of their country in a sport that doesn't really have any other viable career opportunities, they do the damn thing and become a source of national pride, they return home and do the talk show circuit, maybe land an ad campaign for Subway or Head & Shoulders, and return to training and whatever 9-5 day job they have to help them get by. (Fun fact: In the United States, there is no compensation from the federal government for these athletes who represent the stars and stripes on the world's largest playing field.

But the Marlins' offense couldn't solve Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray and only Starlin Castro's ninth-inning homer saved Miami from being shut out. “Today, all I can say is that I pitched well, but the pitcher on the other side pitched better than me,” Chen said through a translator. “That's all I can say.
