East Germany Former communist country, 1949-1990

East Germany, officially the German Democratic Republic, was a country that existed from 1949 to 1990, when the eastern portion of Germany was part of the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War. It described itself as a socialist "workers' and peasants' state", and the territory was administered and occupied by Soviet forces at the end of World War II — the Soviet Occupation Zone of the Potsdam Agreement, bounded on the east by the Oder–Neisse line. The Soviet zone surrounded West Berlin but did not include it; as a result, West Berlin remained outside the jurisdiction of the GDR.

Germany Federal parliamentary republic in central-western Europe

Germany, officially the Federal Republic of Germany, is a country in Central and Western Europe, lying between the Baltic and North Seas to the north, and the Alps, Lake Constance and the High Rhine to the south. It borders Denmark to the north, Poland and the Czech Republic to the east, Austria and Switzerland to the south, France to the southwest, and Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands to the west.

Portwich also won sixteen medals at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships with thirteen golds (K-2 500 m: 1990, 1991, 1995; K-2 5000 m: 1989, 1990, 1991, 1993; K-4 500 m: 1987, 1990, 1991, 1993, 1994, 1995), two silvers (K-4 200 m: 1994, 1995), and a bronze (K-2 500 m: 1993).

The ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships are an international event in canoeing, one of two Summer Olympic sport events organized by the International Canoe Federation. The World Championships have taken place every non-Olympic year since 1970 and officially included paracanoe events since 2010; since 2012, paracanoe-specific editions of this event have been held in Summer Paralympic years.

The 1990 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships were held in Poznań, Poland on Lake Malta.

The 1991 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships were held in Paris, France.
