Margot Glockshuber had her greatest moment when she won the bronze medal together with Wolfgang Danne at the 1968 Winter Olympics, although they had been runner-up at the 1967 World Championships. Shortly after the Grenoble Olympics they planned to skate at the World Championships, but there were rumors that they had already signed a pro contract with the Ice Capades and they were banned from the German team by the Deutsche Eislauf-Union. Indeed, they accepted their pre-contract at once and skated with the Ice Capades until 1972. Glockshuber had the following placements in pairs at major international championships with Danne – Worlds: 1965 – 11th; 1966 – 4th; and 1967 – 2nd. Europeans: 1965 – 7th; 1966 – 3rd; 1967 – 2nd; and 1968 – 4th.
