Katarina Witt is a German ice figure skater, one of the most successful figure skaters of all time. She won two Olympic gold medals for East Germany, in 1984 and 1988, World Championships in 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1988, and six consecutive European Championships (1983–1988). Katarina Witt has been known for her beauty and sex appeal as well as for her athleticism. Time magazine called her “the most beautiful face of socialism”.
I took the main photo during a rehearsal session in Geneva ice skating rink at the beginning of the world championship week in March 1986. The other two photos were taken during the competion.
