Biography

Petra Meier-Felke won javelin gold for East Germany in 1988 and placed seventh at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics after German reunification. She was East German champion from 1984-89 and also won two silver medals at the 1986 Europeans and the 1987 Worlds. She set four world records with 75.26 and 75.40 in 1985, 78.80 in 1987, and exactly 80.00 in 1988, the final mark lasting until 1999 when a new javelin was introduced. In 1984-85 and again from 1987-90 she was ranked #1 in the world.

In 1990 she won a bronze at the Europeans for East Germany, and 1991 added a silver at the World Championships for reunified Germany. She later coached her son Tom Meier. Many documents on doping in the former GDR became public after reunification, and Meier-Felke’s name was found in the list of doped athletes.

Personal Best\: JT – 80.00 (1988).
