1978 CANADIAN SUPERSTARS

The 1978 Canadian Superstars expanded to include nearly two dozen athletes and twelve events. Each athlete chose 7 of the 12 events. Budd completely dominated the event for the second consecutive year, winning five events, finishing second in one and failing to score a point in the bike race after a problem with a pedal. I do not have the final standings, but I know that after seven events the scoring was: Budd 27; Bossy 17; Eaves 16; Palmateer 15; Vachon, Athans & Gabriel 14.
