Cody missed out on a place at this year’s Tokyo Olympics at the Australian Olympic Trials in June. 

The young star, who made a bold charge at Olympic glory after many years away from the sport, placed last in the men’s 100-metre butterfly final.

After the race, Cody vowed in an Instagram post to ‘come back stronger next year’.

He also stated his intentions to aim for a place at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

‘What an experience racing at my first Australian Olympic Trials. To make a final was our goal this year and with less than a year of training we did just that,’ he wrote.

‘I’ve come so much further than I expected to this year and to be racing the best in the country already is a privilege.’

He also admitted he didn’t think he’d be ‘remotely competitive until at least next year at the earliest’ and had thereby exceeded his own expectations.

Cody debuted his romance with Marloes in January this year. It came four months after ending his relationship with American pop singer Miley Cyrus.

The Pretty Brown Eyes hitmaker has dated several famous women besides Miley in the past, including model Gigi Hadid from 2013 to 2015.
