While the East German men had lost their dominance, the East German women were as strong as ever. At the 1983 World Championships in Lake Placid, they achieved a clean sweep of the medals with Steffi Martin, Melitta Sollmann (silver in 1980) and Ute Weiß. Also pre-Olympics held in February 1983 have been won by Martin followed by Sollmann. But Sollmann had since been surpassed in competition by Bettina Schmidt, and Schmidt competed with Martin and Weiß at the Trebević track.

The competition was devoid of any real excitement over the medal positions. Steffi Martin won each of the four runs, while Schmidt finished 2nd in three of the four runs (and 3rd in the other), and Weiß filled up the remaining podium position. Even the two Soviet medallists from 1980, Amantova and Zozuļa, were more than second behind the German trio.
