Jakarta, CNN Indonesia

Indonesia become one of the most efficient countries Tokyo Olympics 2020. With a small number of athletes, namely 28 athletes, Indonesia was able to win many medals.

Indonesia finished the Tokyo 2020 Olympics with 1 gold, 1 silver and three bronze. At 13:00 WIB, Wednesday (4/8), Indonesia is still in 39th position in the medal standings along with Austria and Serbia.

If calculated from the number of medals won at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, Indonesia, Austria and Serbia are in position 27. However, Indonesia is more efficient than Austria and Serbia at the Tokyo Olympics in terms of number of athlete representatives and medal achievements.

Indonesia only sent 28 athletes to Tokyo and Austria had 60 athletes competing in the 2020 Olympics. Meanwhile, Serbia sent 86 athletes, including world number one Novak Djokovic.

According to the official website of the Olympics, Indonesia is one of the most effective countries in the Tokyo Olympics. So far, Indonesia have only lost to Kosovo and Qatar.

Indonesia is far more effective than many countries, which are currently under the red and white team in the Tokyo Olympics rankings, despite sending dozens to hundreds of athletes.

Portugal, which sent 92 athletes, has still failed to clinch gold and sits 62nd in the standings with 1 silver and 2 bronze. Added to this are Kazakhstan (93 athletes) in 75th position with three bronzes, or India (125 athletes) in 64th position with 1 silver and 1 bronze.
