strong showing

had a strong showing at the World Championship (2002 FIBA World Championship) held in Indianapolis, USA (Indianapolis). In a tournament full of well-known professionals, including NBA superstars, the team beat the top 3 European (FIBA Europe) teams at the time; eventual champion Yugoslavia (Yugoslavia national basketball team), Turkey (Turkey national basketball team) and Spain (Spain national basketball team). Puerto Rico, with a 5–1 record entering the quarterfinals, lost its chance to get into the medals round only by a dramatic 2-points loss to New Zealand (New Zealand national basketball team), eventually placing 7th. It is worth mentioning that Carlos Arroyo debuted at this tournament. In 2003, the team also won gold at the CentroBasket tournament (2003 Centrobasket), held in Mexico, but was only able to achieve the bronze medal at the Tournament of the Americas (2003 Tournament of the Americas) and the Pan American Games (Basketball at the 2003 Pan American Games). Reaching its 16th final at the CentroBasket tournament, Puerto Rico conquered the silver medal at the 2004 CentroBasket tournament (2004 Centrobasket), losing to the host Dominican Republic, 75–74, in the championship game. On August 15, 2004, at the 2004 Summer Olympics (Basketball at the 2004 Summer Olympics) in Athens, the Puerto Rico National Basketball Team became the second team in history to defeat the United States Olympic basketball team (United States national basketball team), recording only the third loss in an Olympic competition for the U.S. team, and the first since NBA (National Basketball Association) players were allowed to compete. The 92–73 outcome of that game is, as of 2008, the most lopsided victory against the U.S. (collegiate or professional players) in the history of Olympic World Championship basketball. The other team to defeat the U.S. had been the Soviet Union at the 1972 gold medal game (Basketball at the 1972 Summer Olympics#Gold_Medal_Match_controversy) (which outcome is still disputed) and the 1988 semifinals (Basketball at the 1988 Summer Olympics). Rookie year After seeing Kobayashi (approximately 145 pounds) win the 2002 Nathan's contest, Thomas realized a smaller stature was not an impediment to being a world-class eater, and entered the competitive eating circuit. In her first contest, the June 2003 Nathan's qualifier held at the Molly Pitcher rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike, her tally of 18 hot dogs took first place and enabled her to compete in the July 4 competition (Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest) held at Coney Island. Her total of 25 hot dogs there broke the women's record set three years earlier by Takako Akasaka, the dominant female in Japanese competitive eating. Thomas had several strong performances in the remainder of 2003, including record setting victories in turducken and fruitcake competitions. At a single-person exhibition in a rock festival in Indianapolis, she ate 65 hard-boiled eggs in 6 minutes and 40 seconds, setting a record and amazing the skeptical concertgoers.
