Years ago after wall came down leaks from KGB files showed they were monitoring a beautiful top Russian
figure skater and her sex life was so active it was hard to believe she could walk let alone medal in figure skating.

Correction: It was East German figure skater Katrina Witt monitored by East German SSD out of fear of defection.
six time European Champion 1983-88 twice runner up and four time World Champion 83-88
Two Olympic gold medals in ladies singles '84 & '88


From Kindergarten on she attended a school that specialized in educating athletically gifted children.
She was recognized as being so good the East German Secret Service Dept started monitoring her in 1974 at age 9
and had compiled over 3,000 pages in her file by the time East Germany tumbled and Germany was reunified.

I found some photos of her from 1986 world championship, but I'm too unskilled to post them.
IF you don't remember her, believe me she was an absolute stunning beauty back in '86.

Red Army is a fascinating movie about the 1980 loss to the Americans and the subsequent fall of the USSR through the eyes of a Slava Fetisov. It was interesting to see the role sports played in that, although it was minor, and how much control they exuded over their players.
