Denise Koegl (born August 3, 1988) is an Austrian former competitive figure skater. She is the 2008 Austrian national champion, the 2007 Austrian national silver medalist, and the junior national champion in 2002 and 2003.

Personal life[edit]

Koegl was born on August 3, 1988 in Graz, Austria.[1] She received a coaching diploma from the University of Vienna and the Bundessport Akademie Vienna. In July 2013, she graduated from Karl-Franzens University in Graz with a degree in media communications. She also studied English and psychology.


Koegl represented Eis Sport Club Graz. 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.[2] She also won the Euro Cup in her earlier years of skating.

Koegl sustained an ankle injury in August 2008 and underwent 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.

Koegl appeared at the 71. Hahnenkammrennen in Kitzbuehel, where she worked for Red Bull and various Austrian Sports magazines.
