MOSCOW (AP) - Olympic discus champion Robert Harting of Germany won his third straight world championship title, beating Piotr Malachowski of Poland for the gold medal.

Harting had a throw of 226 feet, 9 inches, with Malachowski at 224-4. Gerd Kanter of Estonia, the 2008 Olympic champion and 2007 world champion, took the bronze at 213-10.

Malachowski had ended Harting's winning streak at 35 meets early in the season, but the German still came up big at the most important moment of the season.

In what has become a traditional gesture, Harting ripped his shirt apart in celebration of the gold.
