In 2022, their paths crossed in a way that changed their lives, marking the beginning of their relationship.

Despite achieving success in the music industry at a young age, Cody felt a different calling that led him back to the swimming pool, a place he had known well before his pop career took off. It was this shift in focus that set the stage for his meeting with Emma McKeon. Both being elite swimmers, their shared love for the sport created a strong connection between them.

While Cody’s journey in the pool may have come to a close following the 2024 Olympic trials, the love between the two Dolphins teammates still remains stronger than ever.

As Emma continues her preparations for her Olympic Games campaign, we look back on the couple’s relationship so far.
