    Katarina's humble beginning is from the former East German city of Karl Marx Stadt, where she had dominated the women's figure skating in the 1980's.

    She began skating at the age of five at the Karl Marx Stadt Sports Club. While Katarina went to school, she learned to skate under the direction of Bernd Egert. When she was nine, Katarina was placed under the coaching direction of one of worlds most prominent skating coaches, Jutta Muller. Katarina was soon spending four hours a day on the ice, sacrificing leisure time and family life for the sport she so loved.

    After regaining her amateur status in 1993, Katarina competed in her third Olympic Winter Games at Lillehammer, Norway where she finished sixth. Katarina was given the Jim Thorpe Pro Sports Award for her outstanding achievements as an athlete, and is also the first German ever to be given the award.
