    Denis Ten

    Denis Ten launching his first ice show "Denis Ten&friends" and in a rather fancy company: Lambiel, Joubert, Slutskaya, Carolina, others. Rather fast, especiallly for the country which is not some ISU monster . The show will take place on May 25th in Astana (the tickets price made me giggle- about $7-$27 per ticket): http://vesti.kz/figure_skating/173724/

    Congratulations for a great accomplishment, an Olympic medal well deserved.

    I've always had high expectations for Denis, even through the two years he fell all over the rink. So glad he got over the growth spurt and got good support and training to become the all round elegant skater he is today. He must be the pride of Kazakhstan.

    Best wishes for continued success.

    Just thought this was interesting.

    Denis has recently visited his ancesteral homeland (Korea), and visited the tomb of his great-great-grandfather, who was a famous general.

    Visited my great-great-grandfather's tomb in Wonju, South Korea. I am so proud and honored to be the descendant of the Korean General - Min Geung-Ho.

    He fought for Korean independence in the 1900s. The army of general Min was the largest in the country and had the strongest fighting spirit. They fought around 100 battles and most memorable fights were in Jeocheon, Jucksan, Janghowon, Yeoju, Hongcheon.

    In 1962 he was posthumously awarded the Republic of Korea Presidential Medal of Order of Merit for National Foundation, the most prestigious civil decoration in the Republic of Korea, for his efforts for Korean independence. In October 1999 the city of Wonju erected the monument (photo attached) in honor of his patriotism.

    "He was a man of integrity and fairness and held in great respect by his subordinates. Also he was a strong-willed commander with an excellent leadership skills and thus had many followers." Says on the monument of General Min Geung-Ho.

    There are 4 photos attached to this post on Facebook.

    Three of the photos are also on Instagram, but with detailed individual descriptions:

    So, Nobunari Oda is not the only skater with a famous and distinguished general as an ancestor!

    Happy birthday to Denis! I enjoyed his shows in Kazakhstan and I'm sure his guests did as well.

    I hope to see him making the podium again next season.

    After SA, I have to say Ten got two of the best programs of this season, looking forward to a clean performance at the end of this season.

    Reviving this thread in time for TEB!

    I never considered myself his fan, but I do think he has a lot of potential with his programs this season. My hopes for him are honestly just to improve from his SA outing... which hopefully won't be too hard

    I was a bit shocked to find out Denis Ten's fan thread is only on its first page yet, I too am not that much of a fan of him as a figure skater, but I;m more of a fan of his programs. I think he is the male version of Mao Asada as Mao is in her finest when choreographed by Nichol, he too is the best to be choreographed by her and how he interprets his programs is exceptional.

    I hope he will have a come back in TEB and give Machida and the rest a game on!
