In 2015, he was coaching Jayden Sawyer and Kath Proudfoot in Canberra. He was selected as a throws coach for the Australian team competing at the 2015 IPC Athletics World Championships.


He retired as an athlete in January 2013. Jason Hellwig, CEO of the Australian Paralympic Committee made the following comment on his retirement – I've known Hamish a long time through my involvement with athletics and have seen him develop as an athlete and a person. It's been great to watch a kid from Alice Springs rise to the heights of international sport and then contribute in such a meaningful way. MacDonald indicated that he would most likely remain involved in Paralympic sport as a coach.


At the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, he won a bronze medal in the Men's Shot Put F32/34/52.


In 2005, MacDonald was recognised by the AIS for being on scholarship for ten years. He has also held a Northern Territory Institute of Sport scholarship.


At the 2004 Athens Games, he won a silver medal in the Men's Shot Put F32-33 event. At the 2008 Games, he finished sixth in the Men's Shot Put F33/34/52 event. At his sixth and final Games, the 2012 London Games, he finished 11th in the Men's Shot Put F34.


MacDonald faced a difficult build up to the 2000 Sydney Games. He was going into Sydney as the defending champion but he did not meet the requirements to be classified as an F56 shot put athlete. He competed in his less preferred events, the Men's 100m T35 and Men's Discus F34. The controversy highlighted the issues of classifying athletes.

In 2000, MacDonald and fellow Paralympian Julianne Adams addressed the New South Wales Legislative Assembly, thanking the people of New South Wales for their support of the Sydney Paralympics.


MacDonald is an advocate for disabled sport, and travels the world to do this. He has visited the South Pacific and Caribbean to help create local disabled sport programs. He has been involved with the International Paralympic Committee as a member of the International Paralympic Committee Athlete Commission. In 1998, he became involved with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). With the UNHCR, he visited two refugee camps located on the border between Thailand and Cambodia. At the 2003 South Pacific Games, he was an athlete ambassador for the World Anti-Doping Authority.


MacDonald competed at five successive IPC Athletics World Championships from 1994 to 2011. In 1994, he competed in 100m, 200m and 400m T35 events. In 1998, he won a bronze medal in Men's Shot Put F34 and competed in Men's 100m and 200m T35 events. There was controversy during the Men's Shot Put where MacDonald was forced to change his technique mid-competition due to an official's ignorance of the rules. In 2002, he won gold in the Men's Shot Put F34 in a world record (10.69m) and competed in Men's Discus F33-34. In 2006, he won gold in the Men's Shot Put F34 event and competed in the Men's Discus F33-34 event. In 2011, he finished 6th in Men's Shot Put F34.


MacDonald was an elite seated shot putter and competed at the Paralympic Games in Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

At the 1992 Barcelona Games, he competed in the Men's 100m C5 and 200m C5-6 without winning any medals. In the lead up to the Barcelona Games, the people of Alice Springs raised $12,000 for him to compete. In 1994, he accepted an Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) Athletes with a Disability residential scholarship in Canberra. He held this scholarship until 2009 and during this period was coached by Chris Nunn, Scott Goodman and Alison O'Riordan. After six months at the Australian Institute of Sport, he was strongly encouraged to switch to throwing events due to rapidly increasing standards in Paralympic sprinting and his powerlifting background. He had unsuccessfully tried throwing events in Little Athletics because of difficulties staying in the throwing circle due to poor balance. His functional classification allowed him to throw from a chair and he subsequently won a gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Games in the Men's Shot Put F32-33 event, in a world record. He was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for this achievement.


MacDonald has stated that several teachers have played a pivotal role in his interest in sport. In primary school, his physical education teacher Gary Cole, an Australia international soccer player gave support and enthusiasm. In 1986, his family moved to Alice Springs and physical education teachers Shane Claridge and Michelle Parker, at Alice Springs High School, provided encouragement. He said: "They were the best teachers; they certainly gave me a big boost and helped to set my sights on track and field sports." He started powerlifting and wanted to compete in this sport at the Paralympics. However, Parker encouraged him to turn to athletics and in his final year at high school, he was selected for the Barcelona Paralympics.
