Additional Information Start of sporting career
He was introduced to shooting at age 12, and he took up the sport competitively at age 25 in Kuwait. (ISSF, 16 Jun 2013; Athlete, 17 Jul 2012)

Reason for taking up this sport
"I first went to the desert to hunt with my father at the end of the 1970s. At this time there were no shooting ranges in Kuwait. Anyone that wanted to shoot would go to the desert, and lots of us did." (menspassion-online.com, 01 Apr 2010)

Ambitions
For him and his son Talal to both compete at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. (ISSF, 16 Jun 2013)

COACH
He coaches his son Talal, who competes in the trap event. "He is talented, and I want him to have all the chances that I did not have at his age. I started shooting when I was 25. He had already become junior world champion before he was 20." (ISSF, 16 Jun 2013)

HUNTING HERITAGE
He comes from a family with a long tradition of hunting in Kuwait, stretching back to his great-grandfather. "The desert was a very different place then, and was very violent at times. People not only hunted but sometimes had to fight in order to survive. On one occasion people came to try and steal their [his family's] animals. My father rode out on his horse and killed each of the eight attackers with a shot to their heart. I tell this story not because I am proud he killed eight men, but because of the skill with which he did it." (menspassion-online.com, 01 Apr 2010)

FALCONRY
Hunting is not the only desert tradition he has continued. "I am a professional falconer. I train falcons, the best falcons, and I participate in the most important international competitions. I often win. It's the same as it is with any form of hunting. It is proving our skills over our prey's skills. It is the most basic of instincts to hunt. Without hunting, man would not have survived and flourished." (ISSF, 16 Jun 2013; menspassion-online.com, 01 Apr 2010)
