Ryan Dolan Wins Silver at Youth Olympics
While competing against some of the world's top juniors, Ryan Dolan won silver today in the men's 500m K1 at the AYOF in Sydney. His time was a personal best of 1:42.82. He finished a mere .1 off the gold medal winner Edward Rutherford of Great Britain. This is really an incredible result for Ryan considering the amount of time he has spent in a sprint boat. This is great news for the program.
Ryan is the younger brother of national team member, Pat Dolan. The USOC is currently running a feature story on Ryan which can be read here.
