Singer Cody Simpson qualifies for Olympic Games trials

Singer Cody Simpson has secured ‘a spot at next year’s Australian Olympic trials in the 100 butterfly’ following his split from Miley Cyrus

Australian singer Cody Simpson has revealed he has qualified for the Olympic Games trials in swimming following his high profile split from Miley Cyrus.

Cody, 23, announced the ‘personal milestone’ to his Instagram on Sunday, and spoke about his journey as an athlete.

‘I’d love to share this personal milestone and let you in on my current journey as an athlete that I’ve kept relatively low key until now,’ he began.

Cody continued: ‘… I have had the chance to experience so much as a musician from touring in arenas around the world, releasing top 10 albums, playing a leading man on Broadway, publishing a work of poetry, travelling with and speaking at the United Nations on environmental and oceanic matters and much more.’

The Los Angeles based singer went on to say almost a decade after entering the music industry, he’s back swimming again. 

‘For years I had been fuelled by the silent fire in my stomach of returning to my first love, the sport of swimming, with the idea that 2020 would be my year to have a crack at training again,’ he said.

‘After only 5 months back in the water training with my incredible coach, I was able to take out a win and secure a spot at next years Australian Olympic trials in the 100 fly.’ 

Support: Cody’s post was quickly inundated with comments from well wishers, including his mother, Angie, who wrote: ‘So proud of you my boy’

The singer is newly single – his ex Miley Cyrus confirmed in August they had split. 

Cody recently unfollowed the Hannah Montana star on Instagram, despite her saying the pair were still friends after their intense relationship fizzled out.

‘We are just deciding who we wanna be in our lives, what we wanna do, and so don’t make it some drama story if next week we’re hanging out, getting pizza,’ Miley said during a recent Instagram Live broadcast.

‘We’ve been friends for 10 years and we’re going to continue to be friends, so just don’t make it something that it is not.’

Miley was previously married to Australian actor Liam Hemsworth.
