Biography

Marlene Fuchs placed seventh at the 1968 Olympic Games in the shot put as well as at the 1966 European Championships. Three years later she was also nominated for the European Championships, but due to the West German boycott she could not start. She placed fourth at the 1967 and 1970 European Cup. Fuchs won 16 national titles in shot put and discus throw and set 10 national records in the shot put. She was one of the best shot putters in the western world during her career, but the Eastern Bloc nations were dominant at that time. She later worked in her parents’ grocery store at Euskirchen.
