The Lord Mayor of Liverpool Gary Millar honoured Dylan at the town hall and presented him with a certificate. Lord Mayor, Councillor Gary Millar, said: “The dedication and commitment shown by Dylan is an inspiration to us all. “His hard work and determination in his sport has paid off massively and I am honoured to be welcoming him to the Town Hall. He is the type of role model that will inspire generations to come and I wish him every success in whatever he decides to do next.” Dylan’s achievement is even more  mazing considering four weeks before he was due to fly out, he was struck down with appendicitis and required emergency surgery. He still travelled to Michigan and took part in the 6th World Dwarf Games
