Cody has participated in athletics for about 11 years with his performance peaking in the last three years. He has competed at national level in cross country and, track and field in different places in Australia. The hard training has paid off with personal best (PB) time in 3KM (8:51) and 1500M (4:08).

Competing in the Victorian team at the national titles in Melbourne, he finished 24th in the 6KM event in a PB time of 19:10; his team were 3rd overall, and 2nd in the relays. A great result overall.
Cody’s goal is to compete for Australia in global meets.
