More sushi glory for Norway / News / The Foreigner

More sushi glory for Norway. Norway has beaten its own record in building the largest mosaic structure made from sushi. Last year’s winning 20.13 square meters mosaic filled with 8,374 pieces was a way to celebrate the arrival of 10 millionth Norwegian salmon to Chinese grounds at Shanghai’s World Expo, but this year’s gathering was football-orientated. 160 people assembled at the Aspmyra Stadium in Bodø to see the Japanese dish represent the Glimt logo.

Last year’s winning 20.13 square meters mosaic filled with 8,374 pieces was a way to celebrate the arrival of 10 millionth Norwegian salmon to Chinese grounds at Shanghai’s World Expo, but this year’s gathering was football-orientated.

160 people assembled at the Aspmyra Stadium in Bodø to see the Japanese dish represent the Glimt logo.

Hoping to beat their previous record and succeeding, the 13,000-piece sushi measured spanned 25 square meters and was prepared by 20 specialised chefs. It will now be entered into the next annual edition of Guinness World Book of Records.

“Sushi has returnedto Norway,” said British Vin Sharma who attended the historic event to NRK.

“They have made agreat effort to achieve this. The old record was 20.5 feet. Thishas now overturned.”

Arne Hjeltnes, a fish enthusiast who witnessed both occasions, is gloating at Norway’s performance in comparison to China’s attempt to break the world record.

“There were 38 chefs in China who made 8,300 pieces. Norway’s 20chefs have made​​13,000 pieces,” he said.
