Krämer competed in the 1960 and 1964 Summer Olympics for the Unified Team of Germany. She won gold medals in springboard and platform diving in 1960. She was the German flag bearer at the 1964 Games, where she competed under the name Engel-Krämer and won a gold medal in springboard and a silver medal in platform diving.
