Cody Simpson, Australian swimming championships 2021 results, Tokyo 2021 Olympics, news,

Australian pop star Cody Simpson proved his Olympics chase is not just a pipe dream, with the Gold Coast native pulling out an scintillating swim at the Australian Swimming Champions.

The junior representative-level swimmer quit the sport 11 years ago to chase fame and fortune, but returned to the pool last year with Olympics glory in his sights.

Now he’s sent a message to his doubters with a 24.68 second swim in the men’s 50 metre butterfly event – after shocking fans when he opted to skip his preferred 100m butterfly event one day earlier.

The 25-year-old’s performance in his 50m heat was good enough for 11th overall, just 0.02s away from booking himself a place in Sunday’s final as one of the top 10 finishers.
