Biography

Ulla Flegel was Austrian champion in 100 metres (1960), 4×100 relay (1965), 80 metres hurdles (1962), high jump (1959 and 1964), and pentathlon ([80H-SP-HJ-LJ-200], 1960, 1962 and 1963). Flegel had very poor luck when it came to the Olympics. She was named to the 1960 Olympic team in the 100 metres but tore a muscle in training and did not go to Roma.

In 1964 she competed in the high jump and the pentathlon. Flegel started all five events of the pentathlon, but ran only a few strides of the 200 metres, the final event, and had to pull up with another pulled muscle. In the high jump, she thought she had qualified for the final, but her coach told her that was a miscalculation, so she left the stadium and returned as a spectator. When she found out she had actually qualified, she entered the final at 1.65 m, trying to jump barefoot, as she did not have her jumping shoes with her, but she missed all three attempts and was out of the competition. Flegel later became a medical doctor in Wien, and published several papers on gastrointestinal physiology.

Personal Bests: HJ – 1.70 (1963); Pen – 4509 (1962).
