In their first few events together they won the 2017 Australian Championships and won the Gold Medal at the FIVB Shepparton World Tour event. Chris and Damien then went on to the Asian Tour and medalled in all 3 events. After achieving a 9th place at the World Championships in Vienna ‘Team Schumann/McHugh’ are ranked number 1 in Australia and 21st in the World!
