Indonesian Olympic Committee (KOI) secretary general Teuku Arlan Prakasa has revealed they aiming to send more athletes to next year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo than it did to the 2016 edition in Rio de Janeiro.

Indonesia sent 28 athletes to compete in seven sports at Rio 2016.

To date, three Indonesian athletes have secured their place at Tokyo 2020 - sprinter Lalu Muhammad Zohri, archer Riau Ega Agatha and shooter Vidya Rafika Rahmatan Toyyiba.

With chances of qualifying in badminton, sports climbing, swimming and weightlifting, Arlan Prakasa is hopeful the number of athletes at Rio 2016 can be eclipsed.

He told Antara News the KOI had formed a team of analysts to study its athletes' potential.

"The team will start working in January 2020 to study the odds of us sending more athletes," he said.

"Then it will work on the medal potential, before going into the detail with regard to the gold-medal potential."

KOI President Raja Sapta Oktohari said he would also work on the Chef de Mission team for the Indonesian contingent at Tokyo 2020.

"At the moment, we are still in direct communications [with the respective Federations]," Oktohari was reported as saying by The Jakarta Post.

"However, once the Chef de Mission team is formed, it will act as the main hub for us to communicate with the Federations as we will also supervise the [Olympic] qualifiers."

Indonesia won three medals at Rio 2016, a haul made up of one gold and two silvers.

Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir won the mixed doubles badminton event, while weightlifters Sri Wahyuni Agustiani and Eko Yuli Irawan were the runners-up in the women's 48 kilograms and men's 62kg categories, respectively.
