Dominic Carroll (born 15 November 1983, Amsterdam) is a retired Gibraltarian track athlete.[1]

Notable achievements include medals at the Youth Centennial Games (organised by the International Olympic Committee to celebrate its centenary), and four medals at three Island Games. He has also competed in a number of World and European championships. In 2010 prior to the European Athletics Championships he was hailed as the "True Spirit of Barcelona 2010" and picked out as one to watch during the competition, unfortunately he was disqualified due to a false start and could not compete after falling victim to the IAAFs new one chance ruling when it came to false starts. During the years spanning 2005 to 2008 he was part of an elite training squad based in Cardiff which included Welsh athletes David Greene and Gareth Warburton, and English athlete Richard Hill, he was deemed to have the potential to match the performance levels of his fellow athletes but a series of injuries hampered his development.
