Azerbaijan named most efficient team at Rio Olympics for medals per athlete

The Azerbaijani national team was called the most efficient for medals per athlete in its Rio 2016 alternate medal table.

"When it comes to the size of the teams each country has taken to Rio, Azerbaijan emerges as the most efficient team. The country has won 0.3 medals per athlete, with its relatively small team of 56 athletes," The Daily Telegraph writes.

North Korea is also high in this league, winning a total of seven medals with its team of 35 athletes - meaning the team has won a medal for every five of its athletes.

The biggest teams in the competition are the United States, Brazil and Germany, with 554, 465 and 425 athletes respectively, AzerTAc reports.
