Singer Cody Simpson has qualified for the 2021 Olympic SwimmingTrials. He took to Instagram to announce the good news.

While this does not mean he will officially be representing his home country of Australia in the swimming portion in the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, but he is one step closer to achieving that goal.

“I’d love to share this personal milestone and let you in on my current journey as an athlete that I’ve kept relatively low key until now,” the “Pretty Brown Eyes” singer wrote to his 3.9 million followers. “Growing up competing, and then inevitably having to cut my career short as 13 year old Australian champion when I was given an opportunity in music that I couldn’t refuse. I have has the chance to experience and learn so much from touring around the world, releasing albums, performing on Broadway, publishing a work of poetry, traveling with and speaking at the United Nations on environmental and oceanic matters and much worse. For this I will be forever grateful.”

“Now almost 10 years later, here I am once more. For years I had been fueled by the silent fire in my stomach of returning to the sport of swimming, with the idea that 2020 would be the year I’d try training again,” he revealed. “After only 5 months back in the water with my incredible coach @hawkbr, I was able to take out a win and secure a spot at next years Australian Olympic trial in the 100 fly.”

“It is my greatest ambition to expand the limit and perceived notion of what’s possible for someone to achieve in a single lifetime, and I’m here to tell you can do absolutely ANYTHING if you are willing to work for it. I’m looking forward to seeing where this all takes me on the long road ahead!,” he concluded the post with.
