Primarily known as a relay sprinter, Emmy Albus ran on the winning 4Ã100 relay team at the 1938 European Championships, along with [KÃ¤the KrauÃ] and the non-Olympians Josefine Kohl and Ida KÃ¼hnel. Albus placed sixth at the 1938 European Championships in the 100 m. What appeared to be her biggest success was marred by the disqualification of the German 4Ã100 team at the Berlin Olympics when [Marie Dollinger] and [Ilse DÃ¶rffeldt] dropped the baton on the final exchange, despite having a big lead. In the heat they had set a world record. Over 100 metres she finished sixth. In 1958, Albus married the sprinter Walter Liersch. She won national championships in 1937 and 1938 in the 4Ã100, and helped set two relay world records in 1936 at 4Ã100 m and one in 1938 over 4Ã200 m.
