Aries Merritt withdrew from the meet late this afternoon after experiencing a cramp in training. "At the beginning of yesterday's workout, I experienced a cramp as I went over a hurdle during one of my drills. I hate to disappoint Boston area track and field fans, but my physios think it is best if I withdraw to ensure I stay healthy for the rest of this World Championship year. I hope everyone understands."
