To be fair, I guess those senseless things happen everywhere...it's not like that would be impossible in Stockholm, or Graz or something...but this is horrible :( 

 

 

Well, I've never heard about someone getting stabbed over car mirrors, let alone an elite athlete...

I've heard about people getting stabbed for trying to prevent someone from stealing their bike...not an elite athlete, but that's just because a vast majority of people is not an elite athlete.

 

Anyway, I'm shocked..

Reports are saying that Kazakhstan's Olympic medalist, Denis Ten, has tragically passed away following an attack in Almaty. If true, this is devastating :cry:

 

What a blow for Central Asian sports and skating in general. He was one of the few skaters I knew and cheered for. What a senseless loss of life
