KAPA & MCHUGH
Together since: 2012 (12)
The Australian duo of Isaac Kapa and Christopher McHugh teamed
up for the first time at the end of 2012 and it was a pairing that
immediately found success when they won gold at the Asian
Championships. They then won five National Tour titles and added a
further two from the Asian Tour before they moved onto the Fuzhou
Open. Next up they began the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour and
competed at the Shanghai, The Hague and Rome Grand Slams. Their
best result was a ninth-place finish in The Hague and Rome. The
27-
year-old Kapa has been playing on the World Tour since 2007, first
with Brett Richardson, then with Sam Boehm, with whom he played
at the 2011 FIVB World Championships. At 23 McHugh is competing
in his first World Championships, but he did play at the 2006 and
2007
U19 World Championships and the 2008 and 2009 U21 World
Championships.
