The United States Olympic freestyle wrestling team has been smacking heads, snapping necks, slamming bodies, and winning medals for 108 years. It all started at the 1904 Games in St. Louis, Missouri when the now famous wrestling event debuted and was contested in seven weight categories. Not to brag, but the United States of America won all 21 medals – gold, silver, and bronze (U-S-A! U-S-A!). To be honest, all 42 competitors involved in that original Olympic outing were from the United States. . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com
