WPW038 - 1985 Nationals Contest - (4 hours and 48 minutes - 3 mp4 files) - More than a 100 women competing - Video Download
1985 was the first year for our contract with the NPC to videotape their national contests. We have that year's second best amateur contest, the U. S. Championships on WPW-34, and here we have the top show of the year, with more than 100 women competing in this bodybuilding event. Included is the Couple's Contest (very popular back then), then introductions for all the competitors, 10 prejudging routines for all four classes, finals routines and awards. Many top name women of the time competed here, including Diana Dennis, Chris Porter, Velma Buckels, Cathy Palyo, Sue Ann McKean, Janice Graser, Mona Krause, Margo Allen, Mary Ellen Jerumbo, Debbie Sider, Lindy Champion, Marianne Duffy, Kay Reich, Nancy Lewis, Susie Jaso, Chris Glass, Janet Tech, Krista Parr-Anderson, Valerie Basilone, Candis Caldwell and Jackie Paisley, all of whom posed. The picture quality is decent for the time, but the sound system for the music was way too loud, resulting in horribly distorted music, so we sadly had to dub light synth music over the routine music. The MC microphone was OK, so you do hear him introduce the women, etc. A terrific, historical contest tape. Running time is 121 minutes for Part 1, 127 minutes for Part 2, and 40 minutes for Part 3.
There three MP4 files with this video.
Total time is 4 hours and 48 minutes.
