William Bell, our Firs Dental Sponsored swimmer is now at Loughborough University studying Sport & Exercise Science! We have supported William’s swimming ambitions with great pride over the years as this young talented athlete achieved so much at such a young age, a credit to his hard work and dedication.
We wish him all the best during his University life and continued swimming career.
The following update is from Louise Bell (Proud Mum) -
From the age of 12, it has been William's ambition to study and swim at Loughborough University. He applied to study Sports and Exercise Science and was offered a scholarship by the University. He was also offered a room in the Elite Athlete Accommodation on campus.
In August William learnt that his ALevel pass grades met the offer he was given and Will accepted his place to study.
He was also allowed to commence training with the Performance Swimming Team straight away. Dream come true!
Will moved onto campus on the 30 August and has been having great fun making new friends, cooking for himself and of course training with swimmers older than himself, including 4 international Olympians! This means the training is hard and fast and Will is really enjoying it. His course began this week and, so far, so good although it's a new challenge to organise his lectures and training so neither clash. Will is back to 9 pool sessions a week. 3 sessions in the gym weekly is new for him.
William would like to thank everyone at Firs Dental for their continued interest and support and hopes to see you all soon.
