Artem Viktorovich Gomelko (Belarusian: Арцём Гамелько (Artsyom Hamelko); ; December 8, 1989) is a Belarusian professional footballer currently playing for FC Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino on loan from Lokomotiv Moscow.

Gomelko was part of the Belarus U21 team that participated in the UEFA U-21 Championship 2009 and UEFA U-21 Championship 2011, but did not play in any matches, as Pavel Chasnowski and Alyaksandr Hutar respectively were selected as the starting goalkeepers.

Gomelko received his first call-up to the senior team of his country in March 2011 for a Euro 2012 qualifier against Albania and a friendly match versus Canada, but did not make an appearance in these games.

He made his Russian Premier League debut for FC Lokomotiv Moscow on 22 June 2011 in a game against PFC CSKA Moscow. Gomelko found worldwide fame for the wrong reasons whilst playing on loan at Torpedo Zhodino after his blooper against bottom side Dnepr Mogilev. Trying to be cool and casual, Gomelko thought nothing of a 70-yard hoof coming his way from opposition defender Anton Matsveenka. With the ambitious effort drifting wide, Gomelko casually tried to catch the ball one-handed, but by using his right glove, ended up diverting it into the back of the net.
