An Olympic Star Visits Trumbull, CT
An Olympic Star Visits Trumbull, CT

Those of us who watched the 1984 summer Olympics were thrilled to be rooting for a young gymnast named Ekaterina Szabo.  For even though she competed in Romanian colors, we knew, of course, that her name was Szabó Kati.  We were even more thrilled when she garnered four gold medals and one silver in the City of the Angels.

It is our good fortune to have her sister, Zita Balogh, as our Treasurer of Magyar News Online.  So when Kati visited her in December, we were able to talk with her and ask her questions about her career.
