As about the focus on the gold medals, i can speculate that's a communist habit. It was the same in Romania before 1989. Even I can say about myself that it took me a lot of time to start to appreciate the other medals too
Well I read some Americans on another forum complaining that NBC's neglect of the silver and bronze medalists was deplorable.
