Katarina WITT: биография

She was also a four-time World Champion (1984-85, 1987-88) and after taking the Olympic and world titles in 1988 she turned professional. With the return to Olympic eligibility of professionals Witt took part in the Winter Games for a third time in 1994, but some of the magic of the earlier days had gone and she finished in 7th place. Witt became enormously wealthy because of her talent, but also because of her beauty, which attracted many commercial endorsements.
