EUGENE, Ore. -- One one-hundredth of a second.After receiving a kidney transplant last September and going through a second kidney surgery in October, after going through months of recovery, training and daily medication, Aries Merritt missed making the U.S. Olympic team Saturday by just one one-hundredth of a second.Racing in the 110-meter hurdles final at the U.S. Olympics trials, Merritt thought he crossed the line in second or third place. But after an agonizing delay, his place was shown as fourth with a time of 13.22, just behind third-place finisher Jeff Porter (13.21).Merritt was obviously disappointed, but he said he had come to grips with it. After all, he has a gold medal in the event from the 2012 Olympics and is still competing against the worlds best despite once thinking he could never run again because of his failing kidneys. Not making the Olympics is far better than being hooked to a dialysis machine for the rest of your life.Nothing can be worse than being told you can never run again, even if you come up a little short here, he said. Ive been to the Olympics, I won the Olympics. Ive broken the world record. So, I mean, someone else can have a turn.Even though Merritt will not compete in Rio, he should still be an inspiration to everyone. While you watch Michael Phelps, Simone Biles and Usain Bolt this August, also keep Merritt and what he overcame prominently in mind.After winning gold in 2012, his kidneys began to fail in 2013. Even with his kidney function no higher than 15 percent, he finished third at the world championships in Beijing late last August. He then underwent a transplant just days later in Arizona, receiving a kidney from his older sister, LaToya Hubbard.And he was only one one-hundredth of a second from making the Olympics again the following summer.It hasnt even been a year since the transplant, only 10 months, Hubbard said. For him to put his heart on the line and just miss at the team, I dont look at it as a failure or coming up short. Hes still on top. Hes still an Olympic gold medalist and still the world-record holder. He may not be able to defend that title, but nobody can take away what he did.No, nobody can take that away. But what should they take away from what he has done and overcome?People should just know that no matter what youre going through in life, if you keep your mind focused on something you want to accomplish, anything is possible, Merritt said. At world championships last year in Beijing, I had roughly no kidney function -- under 15 percent -- and I was still able to do amazing things.This time was a little different because I was compromised by the surgery. Me being sliced open, and my muscles shifted and putting a new organ in and me getting adjusted to the meds, its a lot to comprehend. People dont understand the severity of what Ive been through. Despite the fact Im still out here doing the best I can.Merritts kidney doctor, Les Thomas, says that not only should people look to the hurdler for inspiration -- a way to say no matter how dark it may be, there is always a brighter spot -- they should look to his sister as a hero, as well. She demonstrated extraordinary altruism, giving him a kidney.Thomas also says people should take this story as a reason to consider organ donations. Donating a kidney is not that risky -- you only need one -- but the waiting list can be many years for a transplant.They may not have anyone in their lives who can give them a kidney and they will wait and wait and wait because there is a huge demand for kidney transplants, Thomas said. And sometimes they will pass away with no kidney ever coming to them. ... If [more people donated], we would have a lot less people on the waiting list and less people would die.Hubbard, who gave birth to her daughter the previous year, said she never worried about any risk in giving up her kidney. She simply asked her brother for the phone number of the Mayo Clinic so she could schedule a time.Let me go through this process and get on a table and help my brother out, she said. He had something in his body that was dying and I have something that was living.She gave it to him. And because she did, Merritt is alive and healthy and competing. And inspiring.This is still just a beginning, Hubbard said. We still have the 2020 Olympics ahead and two world championships. I think this is eye-opening for kids and others. ...Always extend a hand and pay it forward. Cheap Jerseys USA .

Cheap Jerseys Online .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians plan for success is pretty simple: Take a late lead and turn the game over to the bullpen.The strategy worked Sunday in a 5-4 win over the Los Angeles Angels.Abraham Almonte singled home the go-ahead run in the sixth inning before Andrew Miller and Cody Allen retired the final nine hitters, sending Los Angeles to its 10th straight loss.Miller, acquired from the New York Yankees at the trade deadline, pitched the seventh and eighth while Allen worked the ninth for his 22nd save.Manager Terry Francona has quickly learned how to get the best from Miller, who has been with the team for two weeks.Sometimes the best thing to do is stay out of the way and let him go do his thing because that was phenomenal, Francona said.Millers day ended when he struck out Albert Pujols, leading to the ejection of the Angels slugger. Pujols was thrown out by plate umpire Clint Fagan after being called out on strikes.Pujols, also upset by a call earlier in the at-bat, was still unhappy following the game.If you start the game with one strike zone, you cant change it, he said. I just told him that (2-0 pitch) was terrible, then I walked away. Its embarrassing.Miller likes the way the back end of the bullpen, which includes Bryan Shaw, is beginning to mesh.Its still sorting itself out, he said. However Tito wants to use me, Im happy to oblige.The AL Central-leading Indians trailed 4-1, but scored twice in both the fifth and sixth to complete a four-game sweep.The Angels went 0-9 on their road trip and are mired in their worst skid since an 11-game losing streak in 1999.

We bunched together a pretty good rally to take the lead.Mike Napoli drove in a run with an infield hit and Francisco Lindor walked with the bases loaded. Jose Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 18 games while Napoli has hit in 14 straight.The start of the game was delayed by rain for 1 hour, 38 minutes. Three of the four games in the series were delayed, totaling 4 hours, 59 minutes.BRANTLEY PLANIndians outfielder Michael Brantley will undergo season-ending surgery on his right shoulder Monday in Dallas.
