Between 1984 and 1988 Witt won ten golds from eleven major international events; two Olympics, four out of five World championships and five European championships. Her competitive record makes her one of the most successful figure skaters of all time.
Witt won a fourth and final World title to end her amateur career at the 1988 World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. She turned in a relatively lackluster long program, popping out of both a planned triple loop and triple salchow, and below the quality of her Olympic performance, but with other top contenders also being mostly subpar and fatigued after the high of the Calgary Games, she won gold with a victory in compulsory figures (her only such win in a World or Olympic event), 2nd place to Debi Thomas in the short program, and victory in the long program.
