Biography

Dora KÖRING

Dora Köring played tennis at the 1912 Olympics, winning a silver in singles and a gold medal in mixed doubles, alongside Heinrich Schomburgk. She won the second German female Olympic gold medal in Olympic history. During the singles final she was leading Marguerite Broquedis when Broquedis left the court to change her shoes. This tactical maneuver took Köring completely out of rhythm, and she went on to lose the match. Köring was the 1912-13 German Champion in singles. She later played a professional tour in 1927 against Suzanne Lenglen, without much success. Köring died in World War II when her house was bombed during the Dresden bombing raids.
