Strangely, I think that this view is quite acceptable with respect to logic. It's that "considered" that is the fly in the ointment.But you said Osmond was "never considered the best in the world" when objectively she WAS the best in the world.
"Conidered" implies "considered by somebody, or by many." It is possible for someone to win a world championshhip and still not be "considered" to be the best, even though in objective fact she has a medal around her neck. The medal is a fact, "the best" is a judgement.
(MK is not the best because she has 5 world championships; she's just the best -- or so I consider. )
