Focused on the Future

When Ryan Murphy was just eight years old, he dreamed of becoming an Olympic swimmer and breaking world records. Thirteen years later, at the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio, his lifelong dream came true. There, Ryan not only became an Olympian, but he crushed his Olympic goals by winning three gold medals in the 100 meter backstroke, the 200-meter backstroke and the 4×100 meter medley relay, setting a new world record for the 100-meter backstroke. In 2021, he did it again winning gold in the 4×100 meter medley relay, silver in the 200-meter backstroke and bronze in the 100-meter backstroke.

Ryan comes from a family of swimmers. His sister Shannon and brother Patrick were both competitive swimmers growing up, and naturally as most younger siblings do, Ryan followed suit. Ryan emerged from follower to leader quickly; speeding past his siblings and countess competitors.

I am always striving for perfection. That is what success means to me.
