Aries MERRITT - U.S.A. - Bronze medal at 2015 World Championships.

A season best of 13.04, after another SB in his semi final of 13.08, still did not

give Olympic Champion Aries Merritt the gold medal that would have complimented

his London 2012 victory and his gold at the World Indoors in 2012 (60m hurdles).

 

Four days after the final Aries was operated upon and given a new kidney.
