The 100 yards final from the 1978 World Final of.. The Superstars!

In the searing heat of Freeport in the Bahamas, and after two heats, the 100 yards final would prove to be a thrilling race between Greg Pruitt (USA), the American footballer, and Keith Fielding (GBR), the Rugby League player.

Although the judges awarded the race to Pruitt the video evidence seems pretty conclusive to many fans that Keith Fielding dipped on the line and actually took the victory. Fielding himself recalled that many fans wrote to him via the programme to say that they all thought he'd won.

The final was the first of three on the trot to be won by the Canadian footballer, Brian Budd. Commentary here is by the late great Ron Pickering.
