General
SPORTS JUGGLE
The defence of his Dakar Rally title in 2012 was below his expectations, so he retired on day nine of the event and returned home to Qatar to take part in the 2012 Asian Shooting Championships. He equalled the world record score of 150 in the skeet event and secured qualification for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. He later admitted that he would not have retired from the Dakar Rally had he been leading the race. (sports.yahoo.com, 16 Feb 2012)

COACH IS KEY
He says the biggest mistake a shooter can make is to start thinking that he does not need a coach. "I have seen young shooters who win a medal at an event and think they are already a big champion. From then on they stop listening to their coach. This is wrong. You must always respect your coach. My coach makes the plan and I follow it. If something is wrong then we try to fix it together." (aspetar.com, 06 Jun 2014)

OLYMPIC SPIRIT
He enjoys both his shooting and rallying careers, but specifically enjoys the feeling of being involved with the Olympic Games. "In rallying I have my own team, but the Olympics? I really enjoy being part of the Olympic team. I like the atmosphere, the whole set-up." (sportday.qa, 13 Feb 2013)
