Ryan is a former international football player who used to play in the England CP Football team as a wingback. He was identified as a PT2 triathlete through a British Triathlon Talent ID day in 2014.
His breakthrough race was the ITU World Championships in Chicago, where he won bronze in the PT2 category. Despite falling off his bike on a corner, he got back up and was able to overtake other athletes on the run to ensure a place on the podium.
Rio 2016 marked Ryan's Paralympic debut, and he secured a sixth place finish in the men's PT2 event.
Ryan is from Derby but is now lives and trains full time at the Loughborough Triathlon Performance Centre.
