Attila Vári (born February 26, 1976 in Budapest), nicknamed Doki, is a Hungarian water polo player, who played on the gold medal squads at the 2000 Summer Olympics and 2004 Summer Olympics.

Vári began his athletic career with modern pentathlon but later switched to water polo. He made his debut for the Hungarian national team in 1997.[1]

Attila's back hand shot from ten meters in the 2000 Olympic finals against Russia was probably the most unexpected and spectacular goal anyone ever scored in an Olympic final game in water polo.
