Young swimmer Safia Askarova told her boyfriend she was breaking up with him to focus on her career. The 16-year-old Russian beauty was stabbed by her ex Nikita Malygin 30 times as a result. He reportedly could not bear Askarova ended their relationship to pursue her olympic dream.
Askarova and Malygin shared the same passion: swimming. The 16-year-old girl was a Russian top talent and because her career had taken such a high flight, she wanted to concentrate on her Olympic dream. She felt that there was therefore no room for a relationship with Malygin and she told him so in their hometown Toljatti.
But the dumped swimmer could not live with her decision and emotionally stabbed Askarova to death, according to local media. He repeatedly plunged a blade deep inside her. Detectives counted as many as thirty stabs across the neck, chest and abdomen.
According to a friend of Askarova, Malygin was "jealous" because his former girlfriend had also gotten closer to another boy. A girlfriend of both swimmers said: “He was jealous about some other guy. They had a row. It led to such tragic consequences. It is hard to believe he could go that far.”
Butterfly swimmer Safia was a runner-up in the 2017 all-Russian youth championships, and recently took part in the Reserves of Russia swimming tournament.
On social network sites in Russia a video is circulating in which you can see how Malygin confesses the murder. The young boy admits to detectives: “I lost control. I took out my knife. I can hardly remember where exactly I stabbed her. I remember the stab after which she fell down…”
“She tried to run away, but I kept stabbing her. I dropped the knife somewhere near. At first I didn't realise what I had done. I realised it only on the way home.”
Her lifeless body was found in the evening of 23 December in a deserted business park. The murder weapon was also quickly recovered. Russian media reported that investigators arrested Malygin the next day and that he confessed quickly.
