Track and field: Maric comes up short at Worlds

Former Cal star Martin Maric of Croatia failed to advance through qualifying on Monday in the discus competition at the IAAF World Track and Field Championships in Moscow.

Maric, 29, threw 203 feet, 4 inches and did not make the cut for the final. A senior at Cal in 2009, he threw nearly 14 feet short of his career best.
