German kayaker Birgit Fischer was never only able to make most of her 12 medals alone, where she shares most of her victories with teammate, Aladar Gerevich. Her joining in over six Olympiads is quite a unique story where she played twice as an athlete for East Germany before the unification of the two nations, and four times when both East and West Germany achieved oneness. She had won 8 gold medals and 4 silver medals in the 1980 Moscow, 1988 Seoul, 1992 Barcelona, 1996 Atlanta, 2000 Sydney, and the 2004 Athens Olympics.
