More than 200 media professionals, including representatives from the Russian Television and Radio Broadcasting Company, were on hand at the media brunch Sunday to learn more about the Arctic Winter Games and how they might cover them.

When asked what the people at home would want to see of the games. “I think those people would like to see the emotions of the children and the way they behave,” said reporter Igor Kornelyuk,. “And of course they want to see their way of life. I want to see real sports, real emotion, win or lose,” he said through interpreter, Olga Belozerova.

Accompanying Kornelyuk, was cameraman, Sergey Pikalov. He is enjoying his stay by admiring the natural beauty of the Kenai Peninsula. “I am very glad I am here, and the thing I like very much is the nature. The wilderness here, and in Russia are very much alike,” said Pikalov, through Belozerova.

Belozerova has yet to meet another interpreter and expects to be very busy interpreting for her group, “I’m going to be very, very busy, not only with media people but with athletes and coaches. I have to be there all the time, traveling from one place to another,” she said.
