Biography

Anita Weiß was an 800 runner who had her greatest moment at the 1975 European Indoors, winning the gold medal. Four years later she claimed the silver medal, and in 1974 she was eliminated in the heats. At the 1976 Montréal Olympics she placed an unfortunate fourth. In 1979 she came in third both at the World Cup and the European Cup, and at the 1978 Europeans she was sixth in both the 400 hurdles and 800, a rare combination. In East Germany she was national champion in the 800 in 1978-79, the 400 hurdles in 1978, and with the 4x400 relay in 1974, adding two indoor titles in 1975 and 1979.
