WPW132 - Illona Pagan & Virginia Brady - (115 minutes - Reduced to 12.95) - Video Download
When we did this work with Virginia and Illona in 1988 it was noteworthy to mention that each were 'mature' women in the sport, despite both being only 35! Obviously times have changed as there are tons of women competing at age 35, 45 and older competing now, it is common, particulary at the Masters Nationals. Norm and Jerry Cohen did the camcorder session with Virginia, and she was in top shape, posing in four different outfits and an interview. A few years after this, the regular WPW crew taped her with pro equipment (on WPW-192) when she was still 'Virginia', but she changed her name to Carmen soon after, and has remained on the competitive scene since, recently winning the 2010 Master Nationals 55+ Class! Despite her name, Illona was an Irish-American from New Jersey, though she had moved to California by the time we met her at her contest in 1988. We taped her with our pro equipment at the contest, when she was in terrific, lean shape. Then, a few months later, when she was up 10 pounds, we did some camcorder footage of her in her former back yard in NJ. No gymwork, but interview included.
All of the camcorder footage is good quality, but note- the video copy we had to make our VOD master had a few 'glitches', where the picture 'rolls', but the problem does not last long.
