Margit Kalocsai started gymnastics at the age of 16 with Ferencvárosi Vasutas, but moved to NTE (Nemzeti Torna Egylet) in 1934. In 1938 she won the Hungarian championship on balance beam, and in 1935 and 1938 won the individual portable apparatus title. Between 1934 and 1936 she was on the Hungarian national team.

In 1934, Kalocsai won a silver medal both in the individual all-around and the team event at the World Championships in Budapest. In 1936 she won a bronze medal at the Berlin Olympics as a member of the Hungarian team. In addition to gymnastics, she also competed in athletics and in 1939 won the Hungarian championship in the discus throw.

A year later, as a member of NTE, Kalocsai ended her sport career after another national championship. However, she did not completely leave gymnastics, working as a coach and international judge until 1963, initially coaching at Vasas, then Bp. Haladás, and finally with Bp. Spartacus.
