Rumors of a split between Chalmers and Simpson dominated the back pages in the run-up to last month’s world championships and have been the main topic of conversation about the Australian team’s success at the Commonwealth Games to date.

Australia was the only nation not to hold hands and lift them in unison for the race, while Chalmers was the only teammate not seen shaking hands with McKeon after their win.

He denied any suggestion that he was not congratulating his ex after the win.

‘Did you watch the whole race? I said congratulations and we [McKeon] stood here next to you and spoke last night,’ he said.

“I find it really hard to believe I didn’t congratulate after the race. I actually walked up and said “well done” across the pool.

“It’s a shame I can’t do anything right at the moment.

“I think it’s great that he’s here… it’s great for our sport, it brings in new viewers. What he has achieved in two years of swimming is unbelievable.”

At the national trials in April, Chalmers announced that he would be taking on the 50m butterfly for the Commonwealth Games – the same event Simpson attempted to qualify for.

Some onlookers believed Chalmers may have been deliberately trying to destroy the dreams of Simpson, a successful pop star whose return to the pool after being a child prodigy in Queensland gave him a cause celeb.
