Katarina Witt wants to get back into the Olympics. But she’s not exactly lacing up her skates & hitting the ice again. The former world figure skating champion & Playboy poser is trying to bring the Winter Games back to her native Germany.
SPORTS BUSINESS INTERNATIONAL reports that Witt was named head of the Munich 2018 Bid Committee, a 23-member organization hoping to have the Olympics back in Bavaria. Munich previously hosted the Summer Olympics in 1972, while Garmisch-Partenkirchen - the town that Katarina’s committee plans to co-host some of the events - was the site of the 1936 Winter Olympics.
So, why should the IOC listen to her? Some photographic reasons why after the jump.
