Kati started gymnastics in 1973 at the Gymnastics School in Onesti with coaches Maria Cosma and Mihai Agoston.
She was from the beginning a very resolute little girl, a very ambitious little gymnast, a person who knew very well what she wanted. So, she became a champion !
She was in love...with gymnastics, a talented and a hard worker (good combination!), she enjoyed competing. As an open minded and a smart person, she was for many years the leader of the team.
Ecaterina Szabo won both the 80 and 82 Jr. European Championships. She was the first and only gymnasts, until Alexandra Marinescu to win the title twice.
For a while had been coached by Bela Karolyi until his defect.

Despite being guaranteed a spot on the 1988 Romanian women's gymnastics team, Szabo retired following the 1987 World Championships. She proceeded to enroll in a degree program at the University of Physical and Sports Education in Bucharest. Following her studies, she worked as a coach at Deva, training a host of future stars (e.g., Nadia Hatagan, Andreea Cacovean, and 1999 World Champion Maria Olaru).

In June of 1991, Szabo married Christian Tomas, a former member of Romania's Kayak team. The two later had one child, a son they named Lorenzo. In 1992, the family left Romania and settled in Chamalieres, France where she now works as a coach. "I received [job] offers from al over the world. I eventually settled for France , because itís not too far from home and I can come back and visit more often," she told ProSport.
Szabo prefers to train low level gymnasts, but has influenced some of France's top gymnasts (e.g., 1994 World Team Championship member F. Marotte). Szabo enjoys her life in France, but has not forgotten her Romanian friends. She regularly keeps in touch with former coach A. Goreac and former teammate Daniela Silivas.
In 2000, Szabo was recently inducted into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame.
In 2001, a kindergarten in her native Romania was named after her. ďItís good to know your name hasnít been forgotten, even after all these years. It means all youíve done is still appreciated,Ē Kati reflected to ProSport.
