André Hoffmann (born August 11, 1961 in East Berlin) is a former German Speed skater, who made a huge step forwards in the 1987–1988 season and won two 1500 metres races in the World Cup. It was even though highly surprising that he took gold medal in the 1500 m at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary. He beat the American Eric Flaim with six hundreds of a second and sat a new world record with 1:52.06
