  • Crates of eggs

Team head chef Stale Johansen said they received "half a truckload of eggs" after trying to place an order for 1,500.

That might explain a recent culinary crackup: chefs from the Norwegian team ended up with 15,000 eggs instead of the requested 1,500, thanks to a scrambled order. They're planning to offer their athletes a little more variety, with tacos and salmon also on the menu. There was no end to the delivery.

Chef Ståle Johansen said the kitchen team would be cooking "almost 24 hours a day" to feed the athletes their rigorous diet.

The Winter Games are a big deal in Norway, a country of 5.23 million peoples who managed to finish others at Medaljabellen in Sochi in 2014, including 11 gold medals in events like cross country skiing and biathlon. So it was an extra zero on the order.

That won't be necessary. "Absolutely unbelievable." Fortunately the team were allowed to return the 13,500 unwanted eggs.

Veterans of numerous Olympics past, these chefs are leading experts in their fields and know exactly what type of nourishment is required to keep the Norwegian Olympians in peak physical condition, and they know the range of flavours that are needed to keep morale high. Numerous athletes in PyeongChang will consume somewhere between 3,000-4,000 calories per day.
