Eva-Maria Fitze (born 10 May 1982 in Dachau) is a German figure skater who competed in both ladies' singles and pairs. As a singles skater, she became the youngest woman ever to win senior gold at the German Championships, taking the title at age 14 in 1997.[1] She added another national title in 1999.

Following the 2001–2002 season, Fitze switched to pair skating. She teamed up with Rico Rex in spring 2002.[2] The duo won a national championship in 2003 and competed in the 2006 Winter Olympics, finishing 15th.
