IAAF World Championships are taking place in Beijing, China, from August 22-30. 

Although several athletes of Estonia's 15-strong team have already finished their events, Estonia is yet to win a medal. 

It's best, if only hope is former world and Olympic champion Gerd Kanter, who advanced to the men's discus final, held on Saturday at 14:50 Estonian time, with third best throw - 64.78 - in the qualification round.
