At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing Naray finished his ranking round with a total of 658 points. This gave him the 30th seed for the final competition bracket in which he faced Jean-Charles Valladont in the first round, beating the French archer 108-106. In the second round Naray was eliminated by Viktor Ruban (115-105), who would eventually win the gold medal.

Together with Sky Kim and Matthew Gray he also took part in the team event. With his 658 score from the ranking round combined with the 665 of Kim and the 654 of Gray the Australians were in 9th position after the ranking round. In the first round they were defeated by eight seed Poland (223-218, the Poles had set the Olympic record with their 223 score). The Polish would not go on to progress further than the quarter finals.
