Biography

Wolfgang Danne had his greatest moment when he won the bronze medal together with [Margot Glockschuber] at the 1968 Winter Olympics, although they had been runner-up at the 1967 World Championships. Shortly after the Grenoble Olympics they planned to skate at the World Championships, but there were rumors that they had already signed a pro contract with the Ice Capades and they were banned from the German team by the Deutsche Eislauf-Union. Indeed, they accepted their pre-contract at once and skated with the Ice Capades until 1972. Danne had the following placements in pairs at major international championships with Glockschuber – Worlds: 1965 – 11th; 1966 – 4th; and 1967 – 2nd. Europeans: 1965 – 7th; 1966 – 3rd; 1967 – 2nd; and 1968 – 4th. He also skated at the World and European Championships in 1963-64 with Sigrid Reichmann (a non-Olympian), though with less success. Danne later became a figure skating coach.
