Israel’s overall medal tally at the Summer Olympics now stands at nine, after judokas Yarden Gerbi and Or Sasson reached the podium at the 2016 Rio Games.

Gerbi and Sasson both won bronze medals in their respective judo matches.

The blue-and-white 47-member delegation, the country’s largest ever, also reached seven finals, including yesterday’s sixth place finish by the rhythmic gymnastics team.

Ilana Koshbetzki, captain of the rhythmic gymnastics squad, carried the flag for the closing ceremony.

Rio marked the second time that Israel has returned from an Olympiad with two medals – at the 2004 Games, judoka Arik Zeevi (bronze) and windsurfer Gal Fridman (gold) also brought home two medals.

Israeli tech shone at the Rio Games with nearly a dozen local companies showing their prowess in security technologies, live video transmission technology, public transportation navigation, AR systems, satellite technologies and sports tech.

The Brazil Games will also be remembered as the first time the International Olympic Committee led an official ceremony at the Olympic Village for the 11 Israelis murdered at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

All eyes are now on the Paralympic Games, where Israel has achieved far better results. To date, Israeli athletes have won 380 medals at the Paralympics.

Israel will have 30 representatives at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Paralympic Games.
