Nasser Al-Attiya has competed at world level in two different sports concurrently for over a decade. The Qatari competed in his first ISAF World Shooting Championship in 1994 and, although he has never won a medal at the championships, he has medalled at World Cup level. At-Attiya, who was Asian champion in both 2001 and 2006, was a member of the Qatari team that took team skeet gold at the 2002 Asian Games.

Interspersed with his shooting career, he has been Qatari national rally driving champion five times, Middle Eastern champion in 2003 and 2005-2008 and won the production class of the FIA World Rally Championship in 2006. He has also competed in the Dakar Rally and in 2008 helped his BMW team clinch the FIA Cross-County World Cup.
