Jerusalem, July 22 (IANS) Israel will be participating in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro with its biggest ever delegation, hoping to improve on the frustrating results in London four years ago where the Israeli athletes did not win any medals.

The Israeli group will include 47 athletes in 16 sports, 10 more than the previous 2012 Summer Olympics, it was announced on Thursday, reports Efe.

The delegation in London failed to win any medals, and in Beijing 2008, windsurfer Shahar Zubari only got one bronze medal.

Throughout its Olympic history, Israel has won 16 medals, including a single gold medal by windsurfer Gal Fridman in Athens 2004.
