Winter Olympics : Norway orders 15,000 eggs to feed 109 athletes

Norwegian chefs are prepared to do whatever it takes to feed hungry Norwegian athletes at the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

To achieve their aim, you might argue that nothing could be easier than getting on to Google Translate in order to render the order in Korean and send it to a local supermarket.

It was exactly what chefs for Norway's Olympic team did, only to end up with a delivery of 15,000 instead of 1,500 eggs.

The chefs successfully blamed a translation error, although it seems as if a typo might also be at fault.

Chef Stale Johansen told journalists that the team were able to return the 13,500 surplus.

It is still unclear how the mistake happened.  BBC Korean service journalist David Cann says Korean has a different counting system and a typo perhaps contributed to the confusion.
