Biography

Claudia LOSCH

German shot putter Claudia Losch won the German indoor championship in the shot put in 1983-84, and 1987-89. She also won nine consecutive German outdoor championships from 1982-90, and took part in the World Championships in 1983 (7th), 1987 (4th) and 1991 (4th), and the 1989 World Cup (3rd). In 1986 she competed in the European Championships in the discus (9th) and shot (4th), also placing fourth in the shot in 1990. Losch was even better indoors, winning a bronze medal at the 1987 World Indoors and a gold medal two years later. At the European Indoors she won three golds (1986, 1988, 1990) and two silvers (1984-85). Losch’s greatest moment came at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, winning the gold medal. She was fifth four years later in Seoul.

Losch was coached by Christian Gehrmann, about whom numerous doping rumors were raised, and Losch refused a doping control in 1990, although she never tested positive. She was awarded the Silver Bay Leaf and in 1990 the Rudolf-Harbig-Gedächtnispreis (Memorial Award). Her profession was as a master optician.

Personal Best\: SP – 22.19 (1987).
