Besides being the greatest deadlifter alive, Vince was also a five time world champion in powerlifting and also an accomplished bodybuilder. Out of all of his accomplishments in his career, the one that he is most proud of occured only last summer. On June 28, 1998, he was inducted into the York Barbell Hall of Fame as a powerlifter.
