At the 1987 Europeans she added three gold and two silver medals, and in 1989 three more golds and one silver medal. Swimming for Germany, she completed her European collection with one silver in 1991 and a gold in 1993. Stellmach also took part in two World Championships, in 1986 for East Germany, earning two golds and one silver medal, and in 1991 earning a full medal set.
