In Mexico City, although trailing behind Mikhail Voronin and Akinori Nakayama after the compulsory exercises, this diminutive gymnast, 1.62m tall and 54kg, produced an inspiring 9.9 mark on the floor exercises to give him the overall title. Kato was an all-rounder, not a specialist; in fact he won only six medals (on the floor gold in 1968, on the bar gold in 1976 and silver in 1972, on the parallel bars gold in 1972, silver on the horse in 1972 and bronze on the rings in 1968) in individual items, although in '68, this was due to an injury, sustained during the floor exercise. He was an easier combined winner in München, where he headed a clean sweep of Japanese medallists. In Montreal he came second in the individual combined, but he helped Japan to their fifth team title in a row.
His older brother Takashi (B. 1942) was also part of the Japanese team in Mexico, earning gold and bronze.
