He stayed in South Korea during the rehabilitation period for his ankle.[87] He finished 27th at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.[88]

2018–2019 season[edit]

According to Lori Nichol, Ten had a plan to create his short program with her in Toronto at the end of July.[89] He was going to reuse his free skating from the 2017–2018 season, after rearranging it in the updated ISU format (30 seconds shorter) with David Wilson.[90]

Personal life[edit]

In May 2014, Ten graduated from the Kazakh Academy of Sports and Tourism with a Red Diploma.[91] By 2015, he began working on his MBA program (Oil and Gas) at the Business School of the Kazakh-British Technical University.[92]

In July 2015, the media reported on Ten's interest in photography. There is a separate social media page where he posted the photos he took. Celebrities who have modelled for or collaborated with him include Dinara Baktybayeva, Aissulu Azimbayeva, Aliya Telebarisova (Kazakhstani actresses), Sabina Altynbekova, and Serik Sapiyev.[93]

Death[edit]

Ten was stabbed in the thigh on 19 July 2018 in Almaty by two carjackers who were attempting to steal his car mirrors, which were worth about 86 U.S. dollars.[94] After being stabbed, Ten lost about 3 litres (5.3 imp pt) of blood[95] and died from the severe blood loss at the Central Clinical Hospital in Almaty, three hours after being admitted.[96]

The Kazakhstan Minister of Culture and Sport Arystanbek Muhamediuly (ru) paid tribute to Ten, saying "Denis Ten was an incredible figure skater, the legend of our sport, our pride."[97] United States figure skaters Adam Rippon, Gracie Gold, Ashley Wagner, and Mirai Nagasu, who used to train with Ten, also paid tribute to him,[97] along with several other international figure skaters including Patrick Chan,[98] Tessa Virtue,[99] Scott Moir,[100] Alex Shibutani,[101] Evgenia Medvedeva,[102] Adelina Sotnikova, and many others.[103] IOC president Thomas Bach stated, "Denis Ten was a great athlete and a great ambassador for his sport. A warm personality and a charming man. Such a tragedy to lose him at such a young age."[104]

The two suspects—both male, one aged 23 and the other 24 years old—were apprehended the next day and may face up to life imprisonment.[105]

A civil funeral service for Ten took place on 21 July 2018 in Almaty. Ten's coffin was taken to the Baluan Sholak Sports Palace, where friends, family, and members of the public gathered to pay their respects. A mourning rally was also held at the Barys Arena in Astana.[106]
