SERGIO OLIVA – “The Myth”
3 TIME MR. OLYMPIA - 1967, 1968 & 1969.


The Key Contents:
1972 Outdoor filming: London
This historic footage was shot by Wayne on Wanstead Heath, in London, 2 days after the 1972 Mr Olympia where Sergio narrowly lost to Arnold in Essen, Germany. The action depicted in this sequence is said by many to be the greatest ever pumping and posing footage to be captured outdoors on film, showing a Mr Olympia title holder in top contest condition.

Sergio oiled up, pumped up with dumbells then posed his heart out for the camera, delivery a virtuoso posing rendition of his Mr Olympia posing routine. This was then topped off with bodypart posing in closeup. The posing of Sergio's arms was awesome to behold, to put it mildly! Complete with the famous "Myth" arms up in the air pose.

While Wayne was busy filming, famous gym owner Wag Bennett was snapping away getting photos to record this historic film shoot for posterity. Some of these photos are in the DVD's Photo Gallery. Wag also shot the photo of Wayne taking photos of Sergio with the big old Mamiya camera affectionately known as "The Tank"! The complete 1972 Mr Olympia footage is contained in the DVD "Arnold the Early Years".

1977 Outdoor filming: Paris
Once again this footage was shot by Wayne, on the day after Sergio won the Pro Class of the 1977 WABBA World Championships. This classic men's contest was staged in Paris, where Sergio had guest posed at the Nubret's promoted Mr Olympia event 6 years earlier. Sergio's 1971 guest posing is included in this DVD on "The Myth".

The popular shooting formula was used again at pool-side with Sergio first of all oiling and pumping up before launching into his classic and winning posing routine. In this segment Sergio is assisted in his pumping up by Miss Olympus Lynde Johnson who obliged by sitting on his back while he did pushups! At the end of the posing routine segment, Sergio again gave us some mind blowing closeup posing of various bodyparts for Wayne's camera.

After the usual posing for photos (see the Photo Gallery) the filming session was all over far too quickly as it became freezing cold at pool side! As far as we know, these were the only 2 professional outdoor film posing sessions ever shot with Sergio during his long career.



Sergio in the Gym: Chicago
We are indebted to Sergio and Frank Marchante, Sergio's biographer, for allowing us to use some highlights from the training video offered by Sergio in the mid 80s. It is now no longer available and is extremely rare footage. My sincere thanks to all of the people who contributed footage. The Myth is now a reality on DVD and preserved for all to enjoy. The many contributors are thanked in the end credits.
