Champion swimmer Cameron McEvoy has shocked fans and the Australian swimming family by announcing his divorce with long-time girlfriend Violet Atkinson.
The 24-year-old confirmed the split this week and said it's friendly and friendly & # 39; and nothing resembled the messy separation between Mitch Larkin and Emily Seebohm.
McEvoy said in contrast to his fellow students Larkin and Seebohm's bitter failure, his breakup with Mrs. Atkinson had nothing to do with a third party.
Larkin was accused of cheating against Seebohm, an accusation he denies.

"It's nothing in that situation that I can assure you", told McEvoy to The Daily Telegraph, adding that he and Mrs. Atkinson were just on different trajectories & # 39; were seated.
He said that the amicable decision to go their own way was mainly due to the fact that Mrs Atkinson's career brought her more and more to Sydney and Melbourne.
Ms. Atkinson, a self-styled influencer and fashion blogger – who is also a lawyer – with more than 18,000 followers on Instagram, has spent the past week mingling with celebrities and sports legends in Flemington's glamorous Birdcage.
& # 39; My training base is on the Gold Coast and I am happy here and we have just decided that the dynamics of our relationship were more suited to just being very, very good friends, & # 39; said McEvoy.
McEnvoy also denied rumors that the breach had something to do with him, concentrating on swimming after a disheartening performance at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Although he was apparently the top of his game and entered the 100m freestyle as reigning world record holder, the two-time Olympic swimmer placed himself in seventh place.

The couple, who met at Northcliffe Surf Club 13 years ago as children, celebrated their four-year anniversary on the eve of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
& Cam; and I met at Northcliffe Surf Club when he was 11, & # 39; Atkinson told The Gold Coast Bulletin earlier.
& # 39; I was homeschooled with my younger brother, so I saved most of my friends from surfing.
"We were friends for a long time and only started dating until the day before he left for the Glasgow Games in 2014," she said.
Atkinson praised her relationship with McEvoy at the time and said that they both & # 39; super chill & # 39; and had liked to have spent with their big puppy Apollo.
Atkinson also said that she has no grudge about the split.
