Earlier this year, Cody revealed The New York Times which inspired him to jump back into the pool and compete in the 2024 Paris Olympics.

“I stopped drinking that night and started looking for pools the next day,” said Cody, a Gold Coast native.

Despite an incredibly successful music career that discovered him on YouTube and was signed to an American record label in 2010 at the age of 13, his childhood Olympic dreams were bigger.

“I love the music industry very much, and I will be a musician well into my life, but it’s not as purely an occupation as sport, which just comes on the clock,” he told The New York Times. .
