Sabine Baeß, married Marbach, (born 15 March 1961) is a German former pair skater. With partner Tassilo Thierbach, she is the 1982 World champion and a two-time European champion (1982, 1983).
Baeß/Thierbach were coached by Irene Salzmann in
Karl-Marx-Stadt (today Chemnitz) and represented the club SC Karl-Marx-Stadt. They were the only figure skating pair representing East Germany to win the World or European championships.
Baeß/Thierbach had to skip the 1981 Nationals and Europeans due to Thierbach's meniscus surgery in 1980.
After 1990 (the year of the
German reunification), Baeß performed in ice shows with Tobias Schröter, a former East German champion in pair skating. They appeared in Friedrichstadtpalast in Berlin.
Baeß later began working as a figure skating coach in
Berlin at the club TSC Berlin.
