1980 U.K. WOMEN'S SUPERSTARS

Fifth place finisher from 1979 Jill Hammersely returned as did Carol Thomas, who had been an alternate in 1979. The 1980 alternate was Colette Reader of netball. Rand took out an early lead by winning the first two events, taking the cycling final after Ann Packer-Brightwell fell. After the 100 meters, Packer-Brightwell gained the lead, but Rand-Toomey was unable to finish the obstacle course and scratched from the 400 meters, presumably due to injury. The former pentathlete would have no doubt been a huge factor in the 400, but both of the last two events were won by tennis player Ann Hobbs, who earned an easy victory.
