In 1973, ABC-TV in the United States debuted a two-hour special featuring ten top athletes from ten different sports competing in events that were not their own. By the end of the year, a similar event appeared in Great Britain. The show grew to encompass women, teams and celebrities. Within a few years, competitions were being held in nearly a dozen countries. This website is an effort to gather all of those results in one place and recognize the great athletes who have taken part over the years.
I have been collecting information for nearly 30 years and I constantly search for more information to complete the site. Anyone with information, please contact me here. If anyone has videos of any events, especially any prior to 1984, I would be willing to take your VHS, copy it to a DVD and return the VHS and DVD to you as well as pay for shipping.
The Superstars is back! In the United Kingdom, the BBC will air a special on Christmas Day. It features eight men and eight women, all medalists from the London Olympics. Mo Farah, the gold medalist at 5,000 and 10,000 meters headlines the field. All together, ten of the sixteen athletes are Olympic champions and they represent nine different sports.
