The is no official confirmation on this, but it is suspected that the Portland-born athlete is dating Megan Clark, a fellow track and field athlete. The origin of the speculation about this 'yet to be official couple' seems to be Clark's Instagram handle. She goes by @mpcvaults on the platform.
Thanks to Megan's several posts, we can say the duo is definitely an item. When Ryan won his second gold at Tokyo, his alleged beau couldn't keep calm. Taking to her Instagram story, Clark wrote, 'So proud of you.' Clark's posts of the couple's dates and recurring appreciation posts for Ryan further solidifies the ongoing rumor.
