Mixed doubles[edit]

Norway has qualified a mixed doubles team by earning enough points in the last two World Mixed Doubles Curling Championships.[9] Norway eventually finished in 4th place behind OAR, but on the 22nd of February it was confirmed that the male OAR competitor had tested positive for meldonium, a banned substance. This meant that the OAR team would be stripped of their medal, and Norway would instead receive the bronze medal for mixed doubles curling.[10][11]

Reactions[edit]

On or about 6 February 2018 before the games, the Norwegian Olympic Team chefs inadvertently ordered 15,000 eggs from South Korea because of a Google Translate error. They only wanted 1,500 eggs. There was a tweet "OL-leiren bestilte 1500 egg gjennom å oversette via Google Translate. Men det slo feil. 15.000 ble levert på døra. Vi ønsker lykke til og håper at de norske gullhåpene er glade – veldig glade – i egg".[17]
