Bliss Sumbler

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.
