John Allan Doms (22 January 1927 – 22 January 2018) was a New Zealand swimmer. He won gold and silver medals at the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Vancouver, becoming the first New Zealander to win an individual swimming gold medal at a British Empire or Commonwealth Games.
Born on 22 January 1927, Doms married Maureen Holman in 1952. Holman is also a swimmer of some note, having won the women's 440 yards at the New Zealand national championships in 1948. The couple went on to have three daughters.
In all, Doms won eight New Zealand national swimming titles, winning both the 100- and 220-yards breaststroke titles every year from 1952 to 1955.
At the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games Doms won the gold medal in the men's 220 yards breaststroke — the first New Zealander to win an individual swimming championship at a British Empire and Commonwealth Games. He also won the silver medal in the men's 330 yards medley relay with teammates Lincoln Hurring and Buddy Lucas. Doms retired from competitive swimming after the 1958 national championships.
