[email protected] (WR holder) gets bronze at worlds,and kidney from sister in 4 days. Nothing to add

It’s hard to disagree with Merritt’s assessment. After his 2012 season where he got Olympic gold and ran a 12.80 world record, he only ran 13.09 twice in 2013, and then in 2014 only ran under 13.37 once. To come back this year, facing his transplant, and run 13.04 when it mattered most is a testament to his fortitude. Merritt said it best, “It’s just been a struggle. It’s been very tough for me these last couple of years. Just to be here at these championships shows that I’m mentally tough and I have the heart of a champion.”
