Olympics

As you all know Ryan has recently finished competing at the Olympics and had a great race in the K2 200m Final where he and his partner Hugues finished 7th in an extremely close race; which had a range of fractions of a second between placings. At the closing ceremonies both Ryan Cochrane’s finally got to meet each other. Ryan had this to say after the Olympics:

Thank you everyone for your kind words. After everything the best part of the Olympics is coming home to the greatest nation in the world and having everyone so excited to have you back. It has been an honor to race for my country and you can be damn sure I’m not done yet!!!!!

Due to copyright rules around Olympic footage and pictures the below pictures are the only available ones as there were taken by family and friends of Ryan during the Olympic races held at Eton Dorney.
