Olympic medal count: USA sets historic gold medal mark - CSMonitor.com• With two more gold medals Sunday (men's basketball and Jacob Varner in men's 96 kilogram freestyle wrestling), the USA finished with 46 gold medals, the most for the country in a non-boycotted Games since 1904, when the Olympics were held in St. Louis and many countries did not come. The USA won 78 gold medals in 1904 and 83 in 1984. Previously, the non-boycott post-1904 high was 45, set in 1924 and 1968
