    Stabbed in the thigh by two carjackers trying to steal his car mirrors and later died from severe blood loss at the Central Clinic Hospital in Almaty
    He didn't yield the right of way to fellow skater Yuzuru Hanyu during a practice session, resulting in the latter yelling at him. (March 31, 2016)
    His training for the 2018 Winter Olympics was inconsistent due to feet injuries.
    His murder could've been prevented had one of his killers weren't released from prison in Astana and sent to Almaty.
    His murder also casts doubts on the effectiveness of local police.
    A lawyer claimed that his murder was orchestrated, as evidenced by a video showing a third person running from the scene, making it potential fodder for conspiracy theories.
    He was the first skater from Kazakhstan to win a medal at the Olympics, hence his nickname 'the Prince of Kazakhstan' for putting the country on the map.
    He and Hanyu quickly patched up after the practice incident.
    He was the inspiration behind the Yuri on Ice!! character Otabek Altin.
    He was interested in photography and collaborated with other fellow Kazakhstani celebrities in his photos.
    His favorite actors were Tom Cruise and Scarlett Johansson.
    The proceeds from his ice show 'Olympic Energy' went to the treatment of a child with neuroleukemia and figure skating's development in Kazakhstan. (August 20, 2014)
