Has it ever been done before that someone competed again at the top after a torn ACL?

Kupets has done it a few times on the college level. Didn't she also tear it as an Elite? Can't remember. I know NCAA isn't the same but she came back to the same form and dominated her senior year. Oh, wait, or did she have achilles problems? Now I am all confused...

Kupets had the torn achilles in elite, but Annia Hatch tore her ACL and came back doing some really nice gym in 2004 (although you could tell she was still recovering a bit).

Hatch was only a one event specialist really though.
