TBT: Enjoy this “Battle of the Booty” between men’s figure skaters Matteo Guarise and Alexei Rogonov
For some reason, this popped up on my YouTube suggestions and I found myself watching it from start to finish! I challenge you to try and not watch the entire thing!
It is billed as a “Battle off the Booty” between Italian pairs figure skater and roller skater Matteo Guarise and Russian pairs skater Alexei Alexandrovich Rogonov.
Guarise was the 2008 World champion in pairs roller skating with Sara Venerucci. With his figure skating partner Nicole Della Monica, he is a four-time Italian national champion (2016-2019). The pair represented Italy at the 2014 and 2018 Winter Olympics.
With partner Kristina Astakhova, Rogonov is the 2015 Winter Universiade silver medalist. With former skating partner Anastasia Martiusheva, he is the 2009 World Junior silver medalist, 2009 Russian Junior champion, and 2012 Russian national bronze medalist.
