Before a motorbike accident at the age of 17 Nathan played professional rugby for Glasgow Warriors and had represented Scotland at under-21 level, in addition to being part of the Scottish archery team.
After he was injured, Nathan started playing wheelchair basketball and took up powerlifting with the aim of competing at the Commonwealth Games. He didn’t think that he would ever get back into archery, but that soon changed after he saw his old coach who encouraged him to start shooting again.
Nathan who started shooting for fun in 2006, only started competing internationally at the start of 2016 when he secured a silver medal at the Fazza International Para Championship in Dubai.
Later that year at the European Para Championship in Saint Jean De Monts, France, he claimed a sliver medal and secured a Rio quota place for GB.
On his Paralympic debut at Rio 2016, Nathan ranked 9th in the men's individual compound (open).
