Personal lifeEdit

Andrei Rogozine was born January 29, 1993 in Moscow, Russia.[1] His family moved to Canada when he was five.[2] He attended Richmond Green Secondary School in Richmond Hill, Ontario.[3] He moved to Newmarket, Ontario in 2011[4] and now lives in Ottawa.

CareerEdit

Rogozine started skating when he was six years old, instructed by Inga Zusev.[5] He began learning at the Forest Hill Skating Club. He was inspired by Alexei Yagudin, the 2002 Olympic champion.[5]

Rogozine debuted on the ISU Junior Grand Prix in the 2007–08 season. Andrei Berezintsev joined Zusev as his coach around 2009.[5]

Rogozine won his first international medal, gold, at the 2010 JGP in Courchevel, France.[6] After winning his other JGP assignment, in Japan, he qualified for the JGP Final in Beijing, where he was awarded the bronze. In March 2011, he competed at the World Junior Championships in Gangneung, South Korea. Ranked third in the short program and second in the free, Rogozine finished first overall with a 3.15 point margin over the silver medallist, Keiji Tanaka of Japan. He was the first Canadian in 33 years to win the World Junior men's title.[7]

Rogozine made his Grand Prix debut in the 2011–12 season. He was a co-recipient of an Elvis Stojko bursary.[8]

Rogozine was coached by Zusev and Berezintsev at the Richmond Training Centre in Richmond Hill, Ontario until 2014.[9][10] He then moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado to train with Tom Zakrajsek.[11] He represented the Nepean Skating Club.

In 2016, Rogozine began performing in ice shows on cruise ships.[12]
