    Figure Skating - 2019

    Getting the new season started with some tragic news.

    Olympic figure skating medalist Denis Ten killed


    MOSCOW -- Prosecutors in Kazakhstan say Olympic figure skating medallist Denis Ten has been killed, and they are treating the case as murder.
    Kazakh news agencies report Ten was stabbed after a dispute with people who tried to steal a mirror from his car.
    Doctors in the city of Almaty say he died in hospital there. He was aged 25.
    Born in Kazakhstan to a family of Korean descent, Ten won bronze at the Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014, becoming Kazakhstan's first medallist in figure skating.
    He also won the Four Continents championships the following year, and was a world championship silver medallist in 2013.
    Ten struggled with injuries in recent years and could manage only 27th at the Olympics in Pyeongchang in February.

    Denis Ten - 2013 World Championships - Free Skate - He can very close to winning the World Title with these performances - only one error across the two programs - a double flip.

    Very sad, always sad to lose a talented person, and so young yet. I wondered why I had not seen him on an entry list for awhile.

    Denis Ten fought so hard and courageously through injuries to get to the 2018 Olympics in Korea, so he could honor his Korean heritage. It was a bittersweet moment as foot injuries made it a painful attempt that ended after the short program.

    I was away from the news the last day or two and just read about this elsewhere. Horrifying!

    May he rest in peace.
