1977 SUPERTEAMS FINAL

The Vikings, who lost their fourth Super Bowl just about a month earlier, lost their second Superteams final. In a very close bike race, Tony Perez and Johnny Bench just held off the hard charging tandem of Paul Krause and Ahmad Rashad to capture the first event and won the running relay by 14 second to take a 2-0 lead. Ken Griffey recorded the second fastest ever obstacle course time at 21.95 to help the Reds win their third event, before losing their usually weak swimming relay. The Reds clinched the title with a 15-9 volleyball win.
