Bliss Sumbler

Aquatic helper

Bliss has just turned 15 years old and is our qualified Aquatic Helper.

Bliss has always loved the water. Teacher Lisa is Bliss’s Mum and she took Bliss to the pool regularly as a baby¬† – Mum says, she just flourished with confidence.

Bliss was taught by Mum until she was 7 and then Bliss joined Wells Swimming Club.

My achievements in swimming

I was picked to swim at team galas at the age of 8 and was then entering competitive meets all across the South West from aged 9.

That year, I was picked as one of Somerset’s Swimmers of the Year and I attended specialised swimming training dates at Millfield with Rachel Adlington.

My passions outside the pool

I have continued swimming, gaining many county times until Covid hit and the pools shut. I then turned my hand at rugby to keep fit. I am now part of the U15’s Somerset County Rugby Team and train and play games weekly for Winscombe Warriors.

I still love being in the pool, I now swim alongside rugby to keep up with my fitness.
Please say “Hi” to Bliss when you see her!
