Slough, England, March 21st, 1998. VIDEO #4.
The Oscar Heidenstam Foundation honours exceptional athletes and those who by their endeavour and ambassadorship serve and inspire others. The OHF Hall of Fame Dinner was held annually on the third Saturday in March, from 1992 to 2008.
See the world-famous honourees, distinguished guests and the many other personalities who attended. Enjoy the tributes, speeches, presentation of awards, and memorabilia displays. There are impromptu times of entertainment with moments of agility and various strength feats from time to time.
The 1998 OHF Video Tape 4 features Paul Wynter, Norman & Sylvia Hibbert “The Zeetonns”, Jack & Elaine LaLanne, Michael Bartlett and Daphne Leeworthy.
PAUL WYNTER was the main guest of honour receiving the OHF Hall of Fame Award. He was the 1960 & 1966 NABBA Pro Universe Overall Winner. He also appeared in numerous Hercules movies.
The Outstanding Contribution to Physical Culture Award went to NORMAN & SYLVIA HIBBERT – THE ZEETONNS.
The OHF Special Recognition Award went to JACK LALANNE from USA “The King of Fitness”.
The OHF Gymnastics Award went to DAPHNE LEEWORTHY.
The Dr Tom Temperley Award went to MICHAEL BARTLETT.
After their award, Norman and Sylvia Hibbert gave an impromptu hand-balancing and agility display. Sylvia Hibbert was the 1968 NABBA Bikini Universe winner.
Norman Hibbert recently sent me a copy of his autobiography “My Life – A Balancing Act”. Norman has spent his whole life working out and practicing balancing. For much of his earlier life, Norman worked in show-business both in films, and with his wife Sylvia with their act “The Zeetonns”. He was secretary of NABBA from 1991 till 1998. It is a wonderfully fascinating book, and is thoroughly recommended. You can order the book on line at the above link.
