Ingrid Lange (née Brestrich, divorced Auerswald, born 2 September 1957 in Jena, GDR) is a retired German athlete, who competed mainly in the 100 metres.


Brestrich-Lange competed for East Germany in the 1980 Summer Olympics held in Moscow, Russia, in the 100 metres where she finished third behind Lyudmila Kondratyeva and East German teammate Marlies Göhr. She then joined with Göhr and fellow East Germans Romy Müller and Bärbel Wöckel to win gold in the 4 × 100 metres relay.[1]

Due to the Eastern Bloc countries boycotting the Los Angeles Olympics, Auerswald missed the 1984 Games, but returned in the 1988 Seoul Olympics to team up again with Marlies Göhr as well as Silke Möller and Kerstin Behrendt to finish second behind the USA team.[1]
