Murder-accused South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius will not race this season, his agent said Monday, weeks before the Paralympian's return to court.
The decision means Pistorius will miss out on the August 10-18 World Athletics Championships in Moscow.
"He's decided he's not going onto the track again and have a go at any competitions or anything for the rest of this year," Peet van Zyl told AFP.
Pistorius had to focus on the upcoming court case and was not physically and mentally ready to compete at top level, the agent said.
