ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) -- Reigning world high jump champion Blanka Vlasic of Croatia says she's doubtful for the upcoming world championships because of a leg injury.
Vlasic said on her official website Wednesday that she has a partially torn muscle in her left leg. She'll make a decision Friday on whether to travel to South Korea.
The worlds start Aug. 27 in Daegu, South Korea.
Vlasic has dominated the women's high jump since taking silver at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
