El rugbier argentino Miguel Avramovic, jugador de Los Pumas, posó para la última
edición de la revista gay Romeo Mag, en una producción de alto voltaje en la que el
deportista llega a aparecer totalmente desnudo y que motivó ofertas laborales de
agencias de modelos.
Según informa Minutouno, el deportista, conocido como "El Ruso" ya había participado
en otras producciones, en calendarios y revistas, pero la sesión de fotos para Romeo
Mag es una de las más subidas de tono que ha realizado.
No es la primera vez que el rugbier Miguel Avramovic, más conocido como “El Ruso”,
se desnuda para una sesión fotográfica.
El año pasado el deportista posó para el calendario francés Dieux du Stade y ahora es
la imagen de la revista para hombres Romeo Mag.
En esta edición también se encuentran Mariano Martínez y el jefe de Gobierno Mauricio
Macri, aunque las fotos más subidas de tono son las que se sacó el rugbier con la
fotógrafa Andy Cherniavsky.

So who is Miguel Avramovic ?
Miguel (born 18 July 1981 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine rugby player, currently
playing for Montauban in France. And for the amateurs, Miguel Avramovic was
photographied for the Dieux Du Stade calendar by Steven Klein.
Miguel is of Serbian origin, from where his paternal grandparents immigrated in WWII,
his friends call him “the Russian”. He started at San Carlos, shone at Alumni, later went
to Worcester and, since 2007, has played for Montauban with whom he has a contract
until mid-2009. He appeared in our national colors for one game with The Pumas. His
imposing physique and sex appeal make him perfect for the calendar pin-up Dieux de
Stade 2008 (Stadium 12 2008) with Steve Klein as photographer.
Today he poses for ROMEO and we look at his personality – as attractive and
captivating as his body.
Tell us about how you started…
I started at the Argentine Modeling School, the owner was from San Carlos and they
played soccer and rugby. I was enthusiastic, and rugby hooked me.
No family history of that – your father played soccer… It’s true, he did. And I played a little
in school, until I was fifteen, but it wasn’t my thing. I played a few years, but my friends
were into rugby and when San Carlos’ team dissolved a friend proposed I come play for
Alumni. I lived close, it was comfortable to go play on the weekends, so why not? I
began to take it more seriously.
You enjoy training...
I tried to be responsible – not go out the night before a game, trained with the club twice
a week and soon every day with as group of friends and a personal trainer to get in
shape. Now I train every day, like a professional, In France and in England, rugby is a
job. I train the way my trainer tells me to. I’m responsible for the way I eat, getting my
rest, and focusing on something to better myself.
What other sports do you play?
Like all Argentines I played soccer as a boy and also tennis. But I only play tennis with
friends. Anything outside of rugby is just for fun, to relax. I don’t play with strangers, I
have enough pressure with rugby, if I lose to friends it doesn’t matter.
You played rugby for Worcester in England. What was it like to play and live there? They
like to play one on one, a physical contest, keeping the ball, though in the end it makes
for a less showy game.
In terms of the pressure, can you compare it to Argentina?
It’s about “performance”. Soccer and rugby are a mix of sports, business and sponsors.
It’s big business with a lot of pressure. If a player has a two-year contract and doesn’t
perform well, they cancel his contract and pay him off.
What was it like to live in the U.K.? Did you have Argentine friends or live alone? Did you
It was a chance to know another culture through its food. I gave Spanish classes to
English boys, first at the house and later we’d go out to a bar and chat. English culture
is very oriented around work, but getting out was a good experience, for me and for
them. In France, playing for Montauban, what is it like?
Luckily I have many Argentine friends and we go out more. French cooking is
spectacular; English is really bland. Thankfully I learned how to cook, though in France I
don’t need to because everything is so good.
And the sport?
The training is more relaxed than in England. In France the player is freer to follow his
instincts, so more comfortable for an Argentine. That’s why Argentines do well playing
France, it’s less cold, you play and have fun on the field.
You have friends all over the world, from different cultures - that must open doors for
I have friends in Morocco, Canada, Fiji… I’m thankful to rugby for that. Plus, learning
languages – though I spoke some English I really improved it, and I had to
learn quickly in France. Fundamental is the interchange of cultures.
Perhaps it was that that got you to pose nude for the Stadium 12 Calendar 2008?
Yes. I went to stay in England for a year. It’s a very open society, mentally speaking,
everyone does what he wants and it doesn’t bother anyone. In Argentina people pay too
much attention to each other, it’s very constricting. There, it doesn’t matter how you look,
as long as you show up for work. Here, they see one tattoo and they treat you as a drug
addict, a failure – there’s a lot of prejudice – there, none.
How did you come to do it?
The calendar was made for the Stade de France players, the president organized it that
year and he wanted to make it a grand production, contracting the famous photographer
Steven Klein and his whole team. Although it was planned
for the national team they invited other clubs. I had already signed with Montauban. They
offered me a contract to use my image in the calendar. I didn't want to do frontal nudity
and they respected that.
You live in France, the cradle of fashion, do you pay attention to it?
Yes, I have to living there – they have rules about entering clubs and bars about what
you wear - here, no one cares.
Do you have favorite brands?
I have a contract with Nike, but most of the time I’m just casual. If I go out I dress up –
Hugo Boss or Armani.
Favorite type of night out?
Dinner at a good restaurant with friends, enjoy ourselves; end up at a bar for drinks, but
not a club.
What kind of music do you listen to?
Rock. I’ve played guitar since I was a kid.
So sing for us! I’d love to, but I can’t sing.
Your contract with Montauban ends in July, what then?
I’ve talked with my club and have to resolve things when I go back. I’m also considering
other offers. I’m ambiguous, some days I’m content at the club, other days I just want to
go to beach or make a change.
Although you didn’t play in the rugby championship in France, you played with The
Pumas. How was it to play in that jersey? I remember it was November 5, 2004, I was
nervous but happy. That year I trained with them a lot. I remember I was really nervous
because I hadn’t talked with my family. We played South Africa, a difficult match. It was a
mix of excitement and anxiety, playing and representing my country at the same time. It
was a proud moment.
You know you have quite a few fan blogs? And admirers of both sexes?
So I hear. It’s a good thing.
About gays? No, none!
Have you ever been hit on?
Yes, but always with respect. Maybe on the Internet someone has said something that
made me feel bad, but in person, nothing has ever happened, and if someone
approached me in person, I could always let him know I’m heterosexual. But I have no
preconceptions about gay guys, I’ve trained with them at the gym and we got along
Have you lived with gay roommates on the teams?
Not that I know of. I think that there’s less prejudice in England and France,
they’re much more evolved societies in that sense. Not like here where if you’re
gay things are going to be more difficult, because our society is just that way. My friends
in Toulouse play with a guy who announced last year he was living with another man.
On the field he’s a ferocious player, and when he told everyone, nothing happened and
no one said anything.
How do you deal with your admirers’ enthusiasm?
I’m down to earth, I’m a simple guy, I don’t believe anything. If you’re successful there’s
no reason to be arrogant about it.
Are you in a couple?
At the moment I’m single.
How about your other profession, as a general medical doctor, right?
Yes, I finished my studies and just need to finish two or three rotations and then I’ll get
my diploma and graduate. Here, to work, you need to specialize and I haven’t decided. I’
m 27 and want to keep playing until I’m 35 or 36 and then be a doctor until I’m 80. This
is my time to enjoy; I’ll work later on.
How did you manage to get through the program?
It was hard, I studied part-time from age 18 to 24, but I have the example of my father
who was a doctor, as is my aunt and my grandfather.
Here in Argentina what do you like to do?
Go out to the countryside on Saturday with my friends, have a barbecue, tell stories and
come back late – maybe a bar or club after.
Patricio Albacete who plays for the Pumas – he’s a model of professionalism, sacrifice,
and he’s one of the best players in the world.
How do you see the national level of rugby?
There’s not much, but it’s gaining bit by bit. I think too many good players left to play in
England, France or Italy. And it’s a recent thing; the Pumas are a group of
semi-professionals. It will evolve.
Anyone you want to thank in your life?
My parents, without them I couldn’t be where I am today. I only hope I can give back to
them 5% of what they gave me.
