A WTHR story on Olympic freestyle skier Nick Goepper, who hails from Lawrenceburg, Indiana, notes, "Also in Sochi from Indiana is Brian Alkire, a DePauw University student from Franklin, who is working as a runner for Today."

"It is crazy that we are both here," Alkire tells the Indianapolis NBC affiliate. "Two Hoosiers in Sochi, Russia, of all places," he added, "before running off with umbrellas to cover the show's hosts from impending rain," reports Anne Marie Tiernon.
