2001 MEN'S FINAL

Austrian skiier Hermann Maier, the Superstars runner-up in 2000, emerged to winthree events and capture the 2001 Superstars championship. The first five eventssaw five different winners. Maier won the bike race over fellow alpine skiier andOlympic champion, Italy's Alberto Tomba. Tampa Bay Buccaneer defensive back RondeBarber won the half mile. Controversy arrived during the half mile race as Maierfinished second ahead of Tomba. However, Maier had run off the path of the road coursein mid-race to pass another competitor. Tomba protested and the decision was to flip-flopthe second and third place finishers. Chicago Bear linebacker Brian Urlacher lifted300 pounds to win the weight lifting. Bowling returned for the first time since 1990and Heismann Trophy winner Chris Weinke defeated the Phoenix Suns' Dan Majerle. SanFrancisco 49er wide receiver Terrell Owens defeated Urlacher in the final of thebasketball competition. Maier started to take command of the competition with a kayakingwin over Tomba. Then Ronde Barber surpised Tomba to win the swimming in record time,breaking a record Tomba had set in the preliminaries. Maier won the Sea Doo race,as Tomba was eliminated in the quarterfinals with a penalty for missing the lastbouy. Terrell Owens won the 100 yard dash in a record time of 9.02 seconds. Owenstime appears questionable. It translates to about a 9.85 100 meter dash, which wouldplace him among the fastest men of all time. This done on sand in sneakers. TikiBarber got a very quick start, evidently jumping the gun. The on-screen timer, clickedall the way up to 9.09, before stopping at 9.02 a full yard before Owens crossedthe finish line. Ronde Barber won the obstacle course, but Hermann Maier's secondplace finish was more than enough for him to capture the Superstars championship.
