Tony Altobelli Could it have gotten any better for Corona del Mar High boys volleyball standout Kevin Hansen?

Imagine being told at age 10 that you have Type 1 diabetes, that you have to monitor your blood sugar, inject yourself with insulin four times a day and become obsessive about everything that goes into your body. Some of us would let the disease control — and ruin — our lives. But like the saying goes, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and as a doctor and a mother in Newport Beach, I've been lucky enough to meet some incredibly strong kids. Type 2 or "adult onset" diabetes gets a lot of attention these days due to its link to the alarming rise in childhood obesity.

While some might describe Kevin Hansen's extended summer in Orange County as being left behind, the U.S. national team veteran chooses to focus on a men's volleyball career that has taken him along for a long, meaningful ride. Hansen, who is now third on the depth chart at setter, expects to be left off the 12-man Team USA roster for the Olympic Games in London that begin July 27. It would be a significant blow to the Corona del Mar High product, who was a backup on the gold medal-winning squad at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

As I watched the NCAA Division I men's volleyball championship on television, it was so great to see two former Corona del Mar High players as the middle blockers for UC Santa Barbara. Dylan Davis and Scott Slaughter formed the first pair of middle blockers from the same high school, to start in an NCAA final. Both players were instrumental in the late-season run made by the Gauchos. What is even more amazing is that last year's NCAA Champion, Stanford, featured CdM's Gus Ellis as one if its' starting middles.

Kevin Hansen is headed to China for the 2008 Olympics, a dream come true, and a truly remarkable feat, considering he was told that an athletic career would be challenging. Hansen, the former Corona del Mar High standout, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 10 years old and was told that sports would be difficult to pursue, Hansen’s bio reads. “I shoot up with needles at least four times a day,” Hansen said.

There is no Olympic trinket, no tiny flag emblazoned with those trademark five rings, no poster with a motivational phrase in big letters to remind Kevin Hansen of his dream. For the former Corona del Mar High two-sport standout, now competing for one of 12 spots on the U.S. men’s national volleyball team, the alarm clock is enough to remind him that his four-year Olympic quest has been a daily grind. That journey began in 2005, after a stellar career at Stanford, where he was a two-time All-American.

When you're shooting for the stars, it helps to have some assistance to keep you focused on what you're doing. In the case of Kevin Hansen, a Corona del Mar High product trying out for the U.S. men's national volleyball team with hopes of playing in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he has had a bit of inspiration: his two older sisters. "Both [Erika and Kristin] played at Princeton, so I had something to shoot for as I was growing up," said Hansen, 24. "They've been supportive of me, as have my parents."
