Are Justin Medeiros's Parents Portuguese?
His parents are from Lodi, California, and are supposed to be of caucasian ethnicity. However, it is not clear whether they are from Portugal or not. He was born in Lodi, California, to Shanna and Anthony Medeiros and had two sisters named Megan and Jessica.
He was a wrestler and football player while attending Lodi High School. His parents encouraged him to take up wrestling because he wasn't athletic then.
He began CrossFit when he was 12 years old and in the seventh grade to stay in shape between sports seasons, but after his sophomore year of high school, he gave up football in favor of CrossFit since he was more interested in the activity.
