Denise Koegl (born August 3, 1988 in Graz, Austria) is an Austrian figure skater. She is the 2008 Austrian National Champion, the 2007 Austrian national silver medalist and the Junior National Champion in 2002 and 2003.


Koegl represented the ESC-Graz(Eis Sport Club). She was briefly coached by her mother, a former Austrian junior champion in ladies' singles, and then by her grandmother, Elli Koegl-Staerck, who was 6th in pair skating at the 1950 World Championships.[1]

Koegl suffered from an ankle injury in August 2008 and had to undergo a complicated surgery. Since the recovery took much longer than expected and due to enduring pain in her right ankle, she decided to officially end her career in February 2010 after winning her 7th Styrian Championship title.
