The face of defeat: Cody Simpson reacts after he’s DISQUALIFIED at national championships – after Kyle Chalmers ruined his dream of competing on world’s biggest stage

Cody Simpson was disqualified from the 100 metres freestyle at the national championships on Saturday. 

And the pop star’s face wore a look of shock and defeat as the results came rolling in at the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre in Adelaide. 

The 25-year-old pulled of his goggles and looked towards the scoreboard, and was openly disappointed.

Once out of the pool, he continued to appear shell-shocked at his poor performance. 

He’d previously thought he was a shoo-in to represent Australia in the 100 metres butterfly at the world championships until Thursday night, when Kyle Chalmers changed his mind about sitting out the event.

Many suspected a love triangle could be part of the motivation for the about-face, as Simpson is now going out with Chalmers’ ex-girlfriend, pool queen Emma McKeon.

However, Simpson told the Amazon Prime Video commentary team on Friday that he and Chalmers have spoken and ‘cleared the air’.

His comments came after Chalmers took to Instagram slamming media reports about his decision and calling the situation a ‘nightmare’.

Simpson hopes to compete at the 100m butterfly for the Commonwealth Games in July-August after finishing third in the fly final on Thursday night.

The publication understands they travel to and from training together each morning, and have refrained from PDA in an attempt to keep their budding romance private.

‘They are absolutely together. There is no doubt they are an item,’ an insider reportedly told The Daily Telegraph, adding that they have ‘fallen for one another’. 

Emma’s reported ex-boyfriend, fellow swimmer Kyle Chalmers, has lashed out at speculation a love triangle is behind him going back on his decision to sit out the 100m butterfly at the upcoming world championships, in a move that has almost certainly ruined Cody’s dream of competing at the event.
