Sunday, June 28th, 1998:The first person inducted
Jan Dillinger of York Barbell: The first man is a four time champion and you'll be hearing that a lot this weekend. These individuals are multiple world champions, multiple world record holders, and one or two of them still have records that stand in fact. This powerlifting phrase that the powerlifting meet doesn't start until the bar hits the floor is probably named for this individual: Vince Anello. (applause) Ask many of his competitors, they'll tell you there is no lead in the squat and bench press that is safe from Vince. I have seen him pull just extraordinary weights, frightening weights and beat people. Vince is a four time world champion and also is a national masters champion. Vince will you please come up
