One is more rare, obviously.

However, I think YEC with the top 8 players is tougher than winning Olympic gold, or it should be. They are both excellent.

The YEC often comes down to who is still the fittest not the best.

TBH, the year Steffi won the Olympics is was probably less of a big deal than it is now. But it's not like they just gave her a medal for showing up, so it's still an amazing feat.
Yeah Navratilova and Evert didn't even play in 1988. Seles didn't in 1992. It wasn't until 2000 and after that it became really important.
