Australian swimmer golden girl Emma McKeon shared some adorable photos of her romantic getaway with Commonwealth Games buddy and boyfriend Cody Simpson.
The couple everyone’s watching flew to Venice, Italy for a well-deserved break after cleaning up at the pool for the Birmingham Games this week.
The 27-year-old McKeon broke the record for gold medalists in the Commonwealth Games’ more than 90-year history.
She won 6 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze, the most gold medals in a single competition.
“Racing in Australia is always special, but being able to share it with the people I love and this time having my parents in the stands made it even more memorable,” McKeon said. I wrote to my Instagram followers.
“The results are what I strive for and work hard for, but they are the memories I make and who I share them with, I know I will hold onto them forever.
Simpson, 26, won gold in the men’s 4x100m freestyle relay and silver in the 4x100m medley relay.
“For me, the thrill of training and racing in the morning and evening is rewarding enough,” he said.
“It is not clear for now that I will miss my international swimming debut with gold and silver.”
Admiring the scenery, the couple decided to rent a private boat for a tour of the iconic canals.
Simpson spent the night sipping a Negroni and McKeon an Aperol Spritz, sipping on two classic Italian cocktails.
The couple apparently enjoyed flying around Europe in their spare time while training for the Olympics.
They both shared a lovely photo taken in July in front of Claude Monet’s classics inside the Orangerie Museum in Paris, France.
McKeon and Simpson recently dispelled speculation that they were embroiled in a love triangle with competitive swimmer Kyle Chalmers.
Chalmers, who dated McKeon in 2021, called the rumors “actually just crap.”
Australian swimming great Grant Hackett said on TODAY’S show that the rumors surrounding the trio are just that.
“They are professionals, they are teammates, they get along with each other, they respect each other when they need to, they go out and perform for their country and they support each other,” he said. .
