Rosalynn Sumners or Debi Thomas?
Each lady was primarily #1 nationally in her quadrennial. But, there are differences -
National Championships - Roz 3 vs. Debi 2
World Championships - tied at 1 each
Olympics - each a medalist; but Roz silver and Debi bronze. Debi was figured to battle for gold while Roz was probably a fave.
no. of World medals - Debi 3 vs. Roz 1 (only)
no. of Worlds appearance - Debi 4 (each year 1985 - 88) vs. Roz 2 (1982 - 83)
It kind of evens out, but do you have a choice? I would say Debi based on longevity while still grabbing a world championship (like Roz)
