Norway Winter Olympic team orders 15000 eggs by mistake

Scrambled in translation? Norway Olympics team orders 15000 eggs by mistake

In preparation for this month's Pyeongchang Winter Olympics the Norwegian team was gathering their supplies, the kitchen crew chose to go to a local store to order enough eggs to last the games.

Demanding 1500 eggs to feed the hungry Scandinavian crew, the chefs were arranged with a Korean supplier using Google's handy tools for smartphone translations.

That is what chefs for Norway's Olympic team did, only to end up with a delivery of 15,000.

One of them being the invitation of around 169 athletes with no doping history to compete as neutrals. That is why Bach's statement is disappointing and oppressing.

What is certain is that Norway's team of chefs will need a crash course in Korean - or to polish their Google Translate skills - if they want to avoid another eggs-traordinary culinary fail at these Olympics. It was "absolutely unbelievable". So it was an extra zero on the order.

Despite the truckload of eggs, the team's chef was able to return 13,500 eggs back to the grocer. Olympic chefs come to the games prepared, but many foods must be ordered locally in order to complete the large task of keeping dozens of athletes well fed for the games, which last more than two weeks.

"There will be lots of omelettes, boiled and fried eggs and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs", Johansen said. "The biggest challenge is that we will be serving food nearly round the clock". "We have both skiers and biathlon here, so there will be food from half-past seven in the morning and until nearly 2 am at night. I know what they like and what they don't like".
