the people she beat isn't so amazing. suarez didn't really pick it up until the middle of 2001. francesca didn't really get anywhere until her run at RG and then has slowly progressed upward. salerni never really lived up to her potential. osterloh and brandi just fell through the rankings.
although, at the time, all of these people were going places. paola and francesca are the only ones who are still going up.
