In 1980 she became the youngest-ever Olympic Canoeing winner. She won all
three events at the World Championships of 1981, 82, 83, 85 and 87 (she took

She did, and the butterflies came back. A few months later "her head had agreed with her belly" and in Athina, she shattered all records by claiming yet another gold in the K4, and a silver in the K2
Her husband Jörg won silver in the C1 1000 m in 1988. She has since divorced but keeps the name.
