Bradley Woodward’s passion for swimming began when he was a young child – instilled from swimming lessons and school carnivals. Hailing from Shelly Beach in NSW, Woodward has continued to work on skills and was rightly rewarded with a position on the Dolphins team. The backstroker competed at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and claimed three medals, including gold in the Men’s 4x100 Medley Relay and silver in the Men’s 100m and 200m Backstroke.
Also a talented surf life saver, Woodward won three medals (gold, silver and bronze) at the 2017 World Games in the life saving competition.
