Commonwealth Games 2022: the latest news of the ninth day, results and medal tally


Commonwealth Games medalist Cody Simpson says he has been overwhelmed with support since returning to social media.

Posting on Instagram for the first time since the games began, Simpson told his 4.6 million followers: “I stayed away from social media for the duration of the Commonwealth Games and a few days later, but today I re-downloaded it to an overwhelming audience. An overflow of supportive messages and congratulations” .

“Thank you. For me the morning and evening training followed by the excitement of the race is rewarding enough – but getting away from my first games with a gold and silver (for my swim in the men’s 4x100m and 4x100m medley relays) is something that beats drafting at the moment.

“I am honored to represent Australia and to represent all the children who have decided to walk steadily in the direction of their dreams.”

Simpson finished fifth in the 100m butterfly final in Birmingham.

Simpson’s relationship with Golden Girl Emma McKeown was one of the talking points of the Commonwealth Games swimming meet.

The couple headed to Italy for a good vacation after swimming at the Commonwealth Games.
