Ryan Dilg began swimming with Special Olympics Utah when he was about 10 years old. Since then, he has also competed in athletics, basketball, bocce, soccer, and volleyball. He also competed on his high school swim team. At Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, he will compete in athletics. Ryan makes friends everywhere he goes. A renaissance man, Ryan also plays the piano, teaches a Sunday school class for 6 and 7 year olds and has an auto mechanics certificate. And he still finds time to mow the lawn, which he says he enjoys! That is, when he isn't busy playing with his nieces and nephews, and two dogs Zippy and Kipper. With all those children and animals to chase around, it's no wonder Ryan's ready to hit the track in March!
