    I have not read every word of this thread, but I have not seen much about Sue Price. Since one can not say enough about Sue Price, let me just say,
    "SUE PRICE!!!"

    Read the article. You'll find mention of her there. She was and is one of the very best lightweights ever.

    I working on the light-heavyweight class now. It has an interesting two-part history both from the 80's, and when it was re-instituted in 2004.

    That's awesome Debbie!! I know I kept a picture of you doing a single back bicep which showed your amazing back and legs on my bathroom mirror to inspire me in 2008 when I was getting ready for the USA's. It's heart warming to know that all of these women on this forum are inspiring other women to reach for their dreams & goals. Thanks for being such a wonderful inspiration to me!!

    For those who may not be familiar with Lori, she represented Guam four times at the IFBB World Amateur Championships and won the gold medal in 2003 as a lightweight.

    Are you still in Guam?
    I will, thanks. She is not on Guam. In 2004 she moved out here to here to Huntington Beach. She is an incredible woman.

    A sad note. Kathy Illingworth an outstanding Australian lightweight in the 80's passed away on July 7th. She was 54. Born on May 29, 1959, she was one of Australia's most successful bodybuilders winning many titles in both the IFBB and NABBA. After she left bodybuilding she became an avid cyclist and entered races. A toxicology report is pending. To see more about Kathy along with her complete contest history, see post #20 in this thread

    Okay, here's the scoop on Aussie Kathy Illingworth:

    Her competitive career is an unusual one, but well worth mentioning in detail. She was just barely 5-0 tall and normally weighed around 110 pounds in contest shape throughout her career. From Burleigh Heads, Queensland, Australia, she competed at a furious pace from 1980 to 1987. She then left the competitive stage completely before returning 12 years later (a la Juliette Bergman's return in 2001) in 1999. The catch was Illingworth only competed once in 1999 finishing fifth at the IFBB World Amateur Championships and then, unfortunately, disappeared permanently. During her early years she competed in both NABBA and IFBB events with equal success in both.
    Outside bodybuilding, Illingworth had a strong interest in theatre dance and arts, and was an avid cyclist. She was always bouncy and vivacious with seemingly endless stores of energy. Today she would be 51, but has not been heard from in years. If she's in the outback somewhere I'd love to hear from her.
    Her sister, Deborah Compton was also a world class amateur bodybuilder who competed in both NABBA and IFBB contests over the years. In fact, Compton, who also represented Australia, finished fourth at the 1999 IFBB World Amateur Championships as a HW (5-3, 135), behind second place silver medalist Lisa Aukland. During her career, Compton won both the 1993 NABBA World and 1993 NABBA Universe titles in the Physique division.
    The following is Kathy Illingworth's complete contest history as she prepared it for me in 1999:

    1980 - NABBA Ms. New South Wales 1st
    1980 - NABBA Ms. Oceana 1st
    1980 - NABBA Ms. Pacific International 1st
    1980 - NABBA Ms. Australasia 1st
    1980 - NABBA Ms. Australia 1st
    1981 - NABBA Ms. Australia 1st
    1982 - NABBA Ms. Southern Hemisphere 1st
    1982 - NABBA Ms. Australia 1st
    1983 - NABBA Ms. Australia 1st
    1984 - NABBA Ms. Australia 1st
    1984 - IFBB Australian Championships 1st
    1985 - IFBB Australian Championships(LW) 1st
    1985 - IFBB World Amateur Championships(LW) 4th (Belgium)
    1986 - IFBB Ms. South Africa International 1st
    1986 - IFBB Australian Championships(LW) 1st
    1986 - IFBB Asian Championships(LW) 5th
    1986 - IFBB World Amateur Championships(LW) 2nd (Singapore)
    1987 - IFBB Australian Championships(LW) 1st
    1999 - IFBB World Amateur Championships(LW) 5th (Australia)

    Needless to say she compiled a successful and colorful competitive career, and easily qualifies as one of the best pure amateur lightweights ever.
    Very cool. ^^^^

    And very sad that she passed too soon. :-(

    Does anyone have anymore photos or information on Satina Watson? I'm her son and I would love to know more about my mother. She passed away in 2002 and I unfortunately didn't grow up with her around.
