Cody Simpsonsinger, songwriter, gold medalist swimmer.

The Australian all-rounder graduated to the top tier of elite sport at the weekend when he took gold in the pool during the competition at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Simpson earned the bling for his swim in the semi-finals of the Australian men’s 4x100m freestyle relay team in Birmingham, England, after which the squad went on to comfortably top the podium.

The 25-year-old Queenslander also qualified for the semi-finals of the 50m butterfly, but finished outside the finalists’ times.

Simpson has now made an impression on the games in the pool and with the microphone. In 2017, he appeared at Buckingham Palace for the launch of the Queen’s Baton Relay, ahead of the competition in his hometown of the Gold Coast.

The Commonwealth Games (known as the Empire Games from 1930–50), like the Olympics, are a quadrennial international multi-sport event and are contested by over 70 countries that make up the Commonwealth of Nations.

The former teen pop star qualified for the national team during the Australian Swimming Championships in May.

A butterfly specialist, Simpson found time away from training in April to release a fourth album via Coast House Collective. The self-titled studio set includes the singles “Nice to Meet You” and “Let Go” as well as the Ben Harper collaboration “It’s a Dream”.

Simpson has five appearances on the Billboard 200 chart (including a No. 10 for 2013’s Surfers Paradise) and one wax figure at Madame Tussauds Orlando to go with his new medal.
