Beijing: Olympic discuss champion Robert Harting revealed on Tuesday that he will miss the World Championships starting in Beijing on August 20.

The reigning three-time word champion is coming back from a serious knee injury but said he doesn`t want to risk his chances of defending his Games crown in Rio next year by rushing his return.

The 30-year-old, who is also the two-time reigning European champion, tore his cruciate knee ligament last September.
