I was raised in Palolo Valley Hawai'i at a young age until my family and I moved to the mainland in northern California. I've spent my whole life around professional athletes and Olympians. My brother was a 2008 Olympic Freestyle Wrestler. Growing up next to him my father and mother I saw the work effort and determination it took to achieve such amazing athletic and career accomplishments. I pursued an amateur wrestling career but never had the passion for the sport like I do now for Beach Volleyball. As a young boy I would pass downtown Waikiki and see these guys in great shape surrounded by beautiful women and living such a cool lifestyle, I wanted to be that guy living that dream. I dropped wrestling and changed my life. Learned how to play volleyball never being formally taught, watching youtube videos and reading books, all while going to the gym and eating better than I did in high school and college. Long story short here I am today, pursuing my passion and letting nothing and nobody stand in my way. I've given up up a lot for this sport and I will continue to give it my all as a professional athlete. I am a proud Polynesian and wear my heritage on my arm in the form of a tattoo, which creates what’s called a "Mana" (spiritual power) I wear this with honor and respect in hopes of representing my culture in the best way I can and bringing some flare to the world of beach volleyball. Aloha,
Christopher "Flyin Hawaiian" McDonald
