Katrin Krabbe (born 22 November 1969, in Neubrandenburg, Germany) is a female athlete who competed for the German Democratic Republic (before 1990) and Germany thereafter. She represented the GDR at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.
Life and career
Krabbe was a successful track star, winning the 100 m and 200 m titles in the 1990 European Championships in Athletics (held in Split) and the same titles at the 1991 World Championships in Athletics (held in Tokyo, where she beat Gwen Torrence and Merlene Ottey). She was also part of the winning 4 x 100 metres relay East German women's team in the European Championships.
A three-year suspension for taking clenbuterol kept her from competing in the 1992 Summer Olympics, and effectively ended her athletic career.   
100 m - 10.89 +1.8 (Berlin 20 July 1988)
200 m - 21.95 +0.3 (Split 30 August 1990)
