Biography

Although Milly Reuter started in athletics and took fourth place in the discus at the 1928 Amsterdam Games, she became better known as one of the first German women who competed successfully in professional golf. In 1939, she was German Golf Champion. As a discus thrower she was German Champion in 1925-26 and 1928. With 32.33 and 33.01 she set two world records in 1925 and 1926.

Reuter was the long-time partner of the athlete and bon vivant [Willy Dörr], but made it clear always to be addressed as "Miss". The pair was a popular topic in the yellow press of that era.

Personal Best\: DT – 40.70 (1932).
