Hurdler Margit Bach was nominated for the 1969 European Championships but could not start due to the West German boycott. She took part in the 1970 European Cup at 100 m hurdles and in the 1971 Indoor European Championships over 60 m hurdles. She earned three national titles in the 100 m hurdles in 1970 and 1971 – beating the legendary Heide Rosendahl in both cases – and in the 1972 indoor 60 m hurdles. The same year she failed in the semifinals of the Munich Olympic Games. She also set four world records\: 1971 – indoor 50 m hurdles; 1972 – indoor 60 m hurdles (twice); and 1970 – 100 m hurdles.

Bach later became a professional press photographer and earned first place in the photo competition "PresseFoto Hessen-Thüringen" in 2010. She has also become active in animal protection.

Personal Best\: 100H – 13.29 (1970).
