Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Christine Errath (born 29 December 1956 in Berlin, Germany) is a German figure skater who represented East Germany in competition. She is the 1976 Olympic bronze medalist. Errath skated for the club SC Dynamo Berlin where she was coached by Inge Wischnewski. She was especially strong in free skating. In 1972 the changes in judging rules lead to a reduction of the importance of compulsory figures, and this worked to her advantage in winning competitions. Representing East Germany, she was World Champion in 1974, three-time European Champion between 1973 and 1975, and winner of the bronze medal at the 1976 Winter Olympics. Until 1973 her chief rival was Sonja Morgenstern, another skater from East Germany who was coached by Jutta M ller. In 1976 she faced another serious rival named Anett P tzsch, also coached by Jutta M ller. Errath lost the competition to P tzsch at the 1976 Europeans, winning only the bronze medal, but came back to medal at the Olympics and the next Worlds.
