Helene Engelmann (later Jaroschka, 9 February 1898 – 1 August 1985) was an Austrian pair skater. With Alfred Berger, she became the 1924 Olympic champion and a two-time world champion. She also won a world title with Karl Mejstrik.
Life and career
Engelmann was the daughter of Eduard Engelmann Jr., a three-time champion at the European Figure Skating Championships. She began skating as a small child, having been introduced to the sport at an early age.
Engelmann also won World titles in 1922 and 1924 with partner Alfred Berger. They won gold at the 1924 Winter Olympics in Chamonix, France. Engelmann did not compete at the European Championships, as her father did, because the pair category was not included until 1930.
