Our deepest condolences go out to Denis' family and friends, and the worldwide skating family". International Olympics Committee President Thomas Bach released a statement following Ten's death. "You will be greatly missed, Denis".

Kazakhstan's Sports and Culture Minister Arystanbek Mukhamediuly called Ten's death an "irreparable loss" for the country. The men stabbed him in the thigh, causing him to lose over six pints of blood.

A statement from Timur Kulibayev, president of the National Olympic Committee of Kazakhstan, read: "On behalf of myself, on behalf of the National Olympic Committee of Kazakhstan and the entire sports community of our country, I express my most honest condolences on the untimely death of your son Denis Ten. Your time with us was way too short".
