Ryan Named Head Coach of Guyana for World Championships
This marks the sixth straight World Championships that Ryan will attend as either a coach or team official for Guyana, a nation in northern South America. Among the athletes he'll be coaching in Daegu is former Manhattan star Aliann Pompey. Pompey, who has continued to work with Ryan since her graduation, is expected to run the 400 meters at the World Championships. She won a silver medal in the event at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
The World Championships, which are held every other year in odd-numbered years, will take place from August 27-September 4.
