After 14 days of quarantine in Howard Springs, she and Cody traveled first to his native Gold Coast.

They later went to Adelaide for the swimming trials, where the singer competed against some of Australia’s top swimmers – but he sadly missed making the Olympic team.

While not going to Tokyo, Cody has vowed to be ready for the 2024 Paris Olympics, writing in an Instagram post, “See you in three years.”
