Did you know there was such a thing as a “Twerk Champion?” No? Don’t feel bad, I didn’t know either. But apparently, at least in Russia, there’s a Twerking Championship.
Before I get into today’s twerk post, let’s talk about “Twerk Champions.” I saw the title of this video and was instantly dubious. First, who is the twerking governing body? Is there an International Twerkers Federation? Are there qualifying tournaments? What’s the format? Is it a best of five? Best of seven?
Ultimately I was able to find very little information on “Twerk Champions.” I did, however, find this Craiglist ad for a “USA Twerking Championship” to be held in Las Vegas on Jan. 20th 2017. Again, I’m dubious about the claim that this will be for the entire USA. A trip to USATwerking.com gave me little more information. I’m definitely going to be digging into this and I’ll report back in the future. I need to get to the bottom of this.
On to the video at hand. This is Manya Arsyonova, and she’s the Russian Twerk Champion…allegedly. I’ve seen better. And I’ve damn sure seen worse. This is just ok. She can dance, but something about her performance is lacking. Overall I give her a 6.8/10. Take that Putin.
