Katarina Witt (born 3 December 1965) is a retired German figure skater. Witt won two Olympic gold medals for East Germany, first at the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics and the second in 1988 at the Calgary Olympics. She is a four-time World champion (1984, 1985, 1987, 1988) and twice World silver medalist (1982, 1986). A feat only equalled by Sonja Henie among female skaters, Witt won six consecutive European Championships (1983–1988).
Katarina Witt wins her second Olympic gold for figure skating...something a former diver like Sarah might appreciate as a sport-lover. This was the games where she beat American Debi Thomas...who also chose to skate as Carmen. Big controversy.
