Dom Bedggood

Gold medal winner and member of the Aussie diving team for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Dom Bedggood, is pumped and ready for his home-town to host Australia’s biggest sporting spectacle.

Dom grew up on the Gold Coast and it’s where he loves to spend his precious leisure time – that’s when he’s not training or studying for his exercise science degree at Griffith University. Burleigh Heads, on the southern coast, is a favourite haunt for Dom and his girlfriend.

“It’s kind of like our little playground down here. We go for a swim, sometimes for a surf. It’s a very laidback community and that’s why I love being here so much.”

Dom and his girlfriend Brittany (and their dog) usually grab breakfast at Burleigh’s Tropicana Café and take a walk along the beach-front paths.
