Christine Stückelberger (born May 22, 1947 in Bern) is a Swiss equestrian and Olympic champion. She won an individual gold medal in dressage at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. Her trainer is Georg Wahl.
The winner of five Olympic medals in dressage, Stückelberger is the most successful woman ever in international dressage events. From 1970 to 1979 she was Swiss champion in individual dressage. Apart from her Olympic medals she was also successful at the World Championships, winning the individual championship in 1978 and silvers in 1982 and 1986. She also earned team medals at the Worlds in 1974, 1978, 1982, and 1986.
At the European Championships, Stückelberger claimed six team medals between 1973 and 1987, and five individual medals, including golds in 1975 and 1977. In 1980, Stückelberger also won the Dressage Festival held one week after the Olympics for riders who had boycotted the Moscow Games, at which most of the world's top dressage riders competed.
He is the fifth Swiss sportsperson to compete at five Olympics, after middle-distance runner Paul Martin, equestrians Henri Chammartin and Gustav Fischer, and javelin thrower Urs von Wartburg. She is the first (and as of 2010, only) Swiss sportsperson to compete at six Olympics.
