As the East German national team won the inter-national qualification matches in 1963 against the West German amateur national team by a 3-0 win in Leipzig and a 2-1 loss in Hannover, the German Olympic team at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics was an East German one. The team won the bronze medal, beating Egypt, 3-1.

Midfielder Gerhard Körner played with ASK Vorwärts Berlin – and later with ASK Vorwärts Frankfurt on Oder when the club was moved from Berlin to Frankfurt – winning the East German Championship in 1962, 1965, 1966, and 1969, and also the East German Cup in 1970. He appeared in 276 Oberliga matches and scored 50 goals.

With the former GDR national team Körner earned 33 international caps (four goals) and played 10 matches with the East German Olympic team. After his retirement he became a graduate sports teacher, and was employed as an assistant coach by 1. FC Union Berlin.
