1976 DUTCH SUPERSTARS

With none of the participants from the 1975 Dutch Supertsars, there would be a new champion. Baseball player Hamilton Richardson surged over the last 30 meters to defeat speed skater Hans van Helden in the 100 meter dash. As expected, van Helden won the cycling easily over 400 emter hurdler Frank Nusse. Nusse then defeated Olympic cycling silver medalist Herman Ponsteen in the table tennis event to grab a share of the lead. van Helden reclaimed the lead by winning the canoeing event over a winding course on a canal. To noone's surprise, Nusse easily won the long jump, outdistancing the competition by more than half a meter. Basketball player Kees Akeboom defeated Ponsteen in the 250 meter roller skating event. Nusse won the gym test easily, his third event win. Richardson remained in contention with a victory by scoring 4 soccer penalties. Nusse claimed another easy victory and wrapped up the overall title in the 50 meter swimming event. The final event was the 600 meter steeplechase. Nusse had already been barred from the 100 meters as his specialty, so he was given a 100 meter handicap over the rest of the field. Nusse caught evenryone and was just out sprinted to the finish line by van Helden.
