Jordan, Amman – May 21, 2023: TOD, the MENA region’s streaming platform for sports and entertainment, has released a new docuseries focusing on the 5 times World Dakar Qatari champion and Olympian Nasser Al-Attiyah.
From winning a record 18 Middle East Rally Championships and competing in Skeet Shooting at six Olympic Games to his latest victory in the gruelling Dakar Rally 2023, Nasser Al Attiyah is one of the most celebrated stars in the world of Dakar. The four-part series showcases the 52-year- old’s remarkable life and career, who is currently participating in the FIA Middle East Rally Championship being held in Jordan.
On 15 January 2011, Al-Attiyah won the legendary Dakar race, making him the only Arab to ever win the difficult championship. His winning streak continues, and he recently won his fifth Dakar Rally driver’s title and second in a row in January 2023, in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. Spanning across 9000 Kms, over the course of 15 days, Dakar is one of the toughest rallies in the world, a competition loaded with challenges. In Nasser’s own words – “I believe Arabs are best suited to competing in a Dakar race. Not everyone can make their way around the desert. It’s tricky, you have to respect the desert. Thankfully, this is what we learned from our forefathers.”
Nasser has also represented Qatar and won bronze medal for shooting in the 2012 London Games. “I’m still going strong in this sport and my future target is the 2024 Paris Games, hopefully I can prove myself there. I still dream of winning medals and aspire for gold,” Nasser said.
