I was born in Bad Schandau, formerly East
Germany, December 19th 1947. I enjoyed music, riding and athletics (sprinting) at school,
before training as a masseuse. At age 27 I left East Germany to settle in the West - not
over the wall, but legally, having married a West German citizen. My three kids gave me
plenty to do, but I felt unfulfilled. I took up rifle shooting for a couple of years -
with reasonable success - before finding the answer in bodybuilding.
I'd always had a complex about my figure. I really wanted to look like a contemporary
woman, with long slender legs and a big bust. It was impossible for genetic reasons.
Through bodybuilding I have been able to get away from that by making the most of the
physical structure I was born with. My self-confidence has increased enormously and I like
the way I look now.
In 1993 I got to know Robin Parker in New York when we did Laurie Fierstein's show
"Celebration of the Most Awesome Female Muscle in the World". I was very
impressed with her personality, her physique and her way of life. She taught me how to
wrestle and find out that I'm a good arm wrestler. I always had fun working for her - for "Physical Culture".
In the past my goal was to compete in the "Ms. Olympia". I competed in the
"Ms. O." in 1993 and 1994. Now I don't have a special focus. I will keep
training my muscles always to stay strong and in good shape, because I like that and a lot
of people like big muscles, too. Perhaps one day I'll come back on stage.... who knows?
