Norway's Olympics team mistakenly delivered 15000 eggs


With 121 registered athletes and officials on Norway's team, each person could consume a little over 120 eggs before the closing ceremony at the end of the month, the Reuters news agency reports.


Up to 22 will actually compete in the games, cheered on by a highly choreographed group of singers and dancers, along with the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un .


No current players will be in Pyeongchang, after the league decided its best interests were not served by shutting down in midseason for three weeks like it did the last five Winter Olympics.


The figure is expected to rise, forcing organizers to bring in 900 military personnel to take the place of sick or exposed security workers.


There are four of them in this Olympics, including a mass start speedskating event featuring 24 skaters that has been compared to a NASCAR race on ice.


But 168 Russians will still compete under a neutral flag as "Olympic athletes from Russia" and 45 others could win last-minute appeals and make their way onto the snow and ice.


Organizers are giving 35,000 fans heated seat cushions, hand warmers and other gear to ward off the cold in the outdoor stadium, where winds are expected to make it feel like it is in the 20s.
