Doris Blanc of Neuchâtel found her way onto the Swiss figure skating scene at a young age, before the age of 10. She was the Swiss national champion in ladies’ singles at the age of 17 in 1943. She also represented her country in the same event at the 1948 Olympics, though did not fare as well this time, finishing 25th in a field of 25 competitors.

In 1950, she married Karl Lehmann, and five years later relocated to Germany for her husband’s work as managing director of Chocolat Tobler. Eventually growing their family to include a daughter and son, they lived in Stuttgart until 1980, when her husband took a position with Interfood and they returned to Switzerland to live in Lausanne.
