The 24-year-old singer and athlete showed off his swimming skills in the Mens 50m Butterfly competition, and made to the finals, where he placed 9th.
“I’m still trying to figure out how to put it all together, still a little rusty out of quarantine. I wasn’t sure if I was going to race this week but figured I’d do the 50m just to start swinging the arms over and see how it goes,” Cody shared in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald. “I was happy to make a final in my first week back. That’s good enough for me at the moment.”
He added that “to make an open final in the first go around is pretty cool, I’ll keep improving as we go. There’s a long way to go but I’ve come a long way in a short amount of time.”
Cody is committed to have a chance to qualify for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.
Cody was spotted in training just days ahead of the event.
