Athlete Biography

Domonic Bedggood will make his Olympic debut at Rio after being selected to dive in the men’s 10m platform at the Rio 2016 Games.

He secured his spot on the 2016 Team with a dominant performance at the Australian Open Championships in the platform, which doubled as a Rio selection event.

The Gold Coast resident took up the sport after he broke his back in a high bar incident doing gymnastics.

Coached by Xiangning Chen, Bedggood won the 2014 Commonwalth gold medal in the 10m synchro with Matthew Mitcham.

Over the past 12 months Bedggood has impressed across the globe, with silver at the Spanish Grand Prix in 2015, 6th at the World Series in Russia and a bronze at the FINA Mexico Grand Prix.
