    DeAnna Price could maybe be considered as close. She only lost once to another American, won USA's first-ever gold and set the American record in her event. I suppose it depends on how head-to-head...

    Claye finished ahead of Taylor at the US Championships, as well. It was Taylor’s choice to not give an effort there and it still counts as a loss.
