Hammer record holder Heidler to skip Beijing Worlds
Berlin: Three months after failing to qualify for world championship final in Moscow, Betty Heidler, world record holder for women`s hammer throw, said she`ll not attend the 2015 Worlds in Beijing.
The 30-year-old German, who ruled out any appearance in future worlds, created the world record of 79.42 metres in May 2011.
She only finished 18th in the qualification round in Moscow, not enough to earn a berth at the final.
"I still have no firm date for when I will retire, I think about things from year to year, but I won`t be competing at a world championship again," the 2007 world champion told website leichtathletik.de.
Heidler said it was personal and didn`t want to discuss about the decision further.
