Other Ryan's gold medal achievement at the 2005 Asia Pacific Bowls Championship in Melbourne, Australia, secured the men's overall championship trophy for Canada for the first time since 1991.

His grandfather and uncle introduced him to lawn bowls when he was 10, and Ryan claims things got rather competitive between him and his brother once they discovered the sport.

He teamed up with Keith Roney to win the pairs event at the 2004 World Championships and was also named bowler of the tournament.

He was only 17 years old when he competed as a member of the 2002 Commonwealth Games team, and has travelled to Asia, Australia and Africa for competitions.

Ryan says the best thing about being a lawn bowler is that it's a great sport with low physical needs.
