Emma McKeon and Cody Simpson share photos from their romantic Italian getaway – after Emma was crowned the most decorated Commonwealth Games athlete EVER
Swimming powerhouse couple Cody Simpson and Emma McKeon are currently relaxing on a romantic Italian getaway after smashing records at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
Emma, 28, posted some precious photos of the lovebirds taking in the sights in Venice, Italy’s world renowned city built on water.
The ‘floating city’ is an ideal holiday spot for the swimming stars as Emma’s sensational Birmingham performance saw her win six gold medals and become the most decorated Commonwealth Games athlete ever.

She shared some precious snaps to her Instagram on Wednesday of the loved-up couple relaxing in Venice after two gruelling weeks in Birmingham.
One heartwarming photo captured the lovers posing by a bridge with a Venetian canal in the background, while another showed Emma smelling a Venetian rose.
The pair kept it casual with Cody, 25, clad in a plain shirt while Emma sported a stylish spaghetti strap dress.

Emma wrote next to the gallery they were having a ‘magical time in Venice’.
The pair are said to have first hit it off several months ago as training partners under gun coach Michael Bohl.
They found themselves in the middle of a reputed ‘love triangle’ during the Australian Championships in Adelaide, with reports claiming fellow athlete Kyle Chalmers deliberately bumped Simpson out of World Championship eligibility in the 100m butterfly by opting to contest the event.

However, Chalmers, who dated McKeon for several months in 2021, later disputed this, saying he had always planned to compete in that event.
It comes after Cody went ‘Instagram official’ with Emma last month.
The pop singer posted a gallery of photos on Instagram of himself and Emma holding hands in Barcelona, Spain.
