Cody Simpson Achieves a Personal Best, But Falls Short in First Olympic Trials Event

Cody Simpson just competed in his first swimming trial for the 2021 Summer Olympics!

The 24-year-old singer is taking a break from his music career to focus on his goal of competing on Australia’s swimming team for the Olympics.

Cody competed in the 100 freestyle trial and he finished 23rd out of 92 swimmers. His time of 50.22 seconds was a personal best, but it wasn’t enough for him to advance to the Olympics in that event.

Cody‘s next event, which is his preferred event, is the 100 butterfly.

“I wanted to just get up and do something before the 100 ’fly otherwise I would be waiting around all week,” Cody told the Associated Press. “Just being around all these athletes … I love this, I really want to do this for a while. My goal this meet would be to try to make that final in the 100 ’fly, that would be nice As long as I’m improving, that’s all I can really ask for.”

Cody recently broke his silence about his split from Miley Cyrus.
