Sublime is a member of the Limers. He is one of the original members of the team along with Lemonlime, Jellime and Slimelime. He achieved the team's first and only gold medal during Marble League 2018, in the Snowboard Cross. He was subsequently voted captain of the Limers on the 25th of February 2019.[1]

HistoryEdit

Sublime comes from the Adriatic coast in southern Europe. Sublime and the rest of the Limers began their racing career in the Syndesmarble, a yearly ancient marble racing competition in the city of Sotsevsa. One year, the Limers performed so well that they caught the attention of Greg Woods. Woods invited them to join the Fruit Circuit and they accepted. They started touring with the Fruit Circuit in 2004. They were eventually joined by fellow Marble League teams the O'rangers, the Raspberry Racers and Mellow Yellow. The Limers became rivals with the Raspberry Racers due to their geographic proximity and contrasting colors.

When Marble League 2016 was announced, the Fruit Circuit were offered three places. The Limers ultimately won the 2015 Fruit Circuit and qualified for Marble League 2016 along with the O'rangers and Mellow Yellow, leaving the Raspberry Racers behind.

The Limers came in to Marble League 2016 with high hopes. However, the team had a mediocre performance, gaining only two points in the first half of the competition from the second event, the Relay Race. In this time, Sublime came 16th in the Sand Rally. They managed to gain points in all but two of the second half events including a bronze medal in Event 11, Quartet Diving. Sublime managed to pick up four points total in the High Jump and the Hurdles. This was not enough, with the team coming 15th overall, only avoiding coming joint last with the Pinkies because of their disqualification in Event 12, Hurdles. The Limers felt that the points system was too heavily weighted towards gaining medals, punishing lower placing teams. They appealed to Jelle and the points system was changed for the following Marble League.

The Limers returned to Tartufo and built a training center outside the city and started a rigorous training regime on the cliffs. Jellime left the team to become an adviser to the Syndesmarble and was replaced by Goolime.

The Limers started off the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers poorly, gaining no points in the first event. However, the team managed to gain enough points in the following thee events to qualify for Marble League 2017. The team managed to gain points in all events under the new point system. They started off poorly, coming in the bottom half in the first two events. They managed to gain a silver medal in Event 3, Fidget Spinner Collision. They then managed to finish in the top half of the next four events, gaining a bronze medal in Event 6, the Relay Run, putting them into 2nd place overall. This included a 4th place finish for Sublime in the Hurdles. However, they had a poor second half of the season and ended up finishing in 10th place overall. The team were still happy with their results.

Once again, the team went into rigorous training over the off-season. The team were invited to the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers draw and were surprised to see that their rivals from the times of the Fruit Circuit, the Raspberry Racers, had also qualified, and they both ended up in the same qualification group. The Limers managed to beat their rivals in the Curling and Halfpipe events, and still qualified for Marble League 2018 in 4th, behind the Raspberry Racers who qualified in 2nd, with only 1 point between them. The team had another poor season, gaining no points in one quarter of the events, and only managed top half finishes in one third of the events.

Sublime started off with a 10th place finish in the 5 Meter Ice Dash. By the end of Event 7, the Snow Rally, the team had been in last place after all but three of the events. It was clear they would not win the competition, but the Limers were still determined to not come last. Sublime was selected to take part in Event 8, the Snowboard Cross. He came second in his heat, behind Rozzy of the Raspberry Racers, and then won the final, gaining the team their first gold medal of any Marble League event.

The team managed to finish in the middle of the pack in all the remaining events, except for a last place finish in Event 11, Ice Hockey. The Limers managed to finish in 14th, finishing ahead of fellow Fruit Circuit team Mellow Yellow on medals. However, the team was more concerned with the fact that their rivals, the Raspberry Racers, had beaten them in all but two events.

The Limers continued to face their rivals in the offseason, with Sublime coming 2nd and beating the Raspberry Racers in the 100 Meter Water Race and the team coming 4th and losing to them in the Amazing Maze Marble Race. The Limers had put in a bid to host Marble League 2019, but lost to the Oceanics. This, along with the losses to their rivals, led to a drop in morale.

The team had a great start to the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, coming in second after the second event. However, they only managed to come 12th in the third event, and a 19th place finish in the Underwater Race and the Chocolatiers' 4th place finish meant the Limers failed to qualify for Marble League 2019 by three points. Their time in the qualifiers was also soured by Limers fans throwing debris onto the track during the Relay Race to allegedly try and disrupt the Raspberry Racers. Team Primary did not finish the race and blamed it on the Limers fans' debris.

When the Marble League Showdown 2019 was announced, the Limers immediately started training again, trying to rebuild emotionally, physically and mentally, once again returning to the cliffs of Tartufo to train. They came into the Showdown under immense pressure after their rivals, the Raspberry Racers, had won Marble League 2019.

The Showdown went poorly for the Limers, coming last in two of the events and staying in last place overall throughout the entire competition. When their failure to qualify for the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers was confirmed during the final event, Balancing, some Limers fans stormed onto the field in anger and the team had to be escorted off the pitch by security for their safety.

The team was visibly devastated at this point. They were in their worst shape and would have to miss out on Marble League 2020. The resilience of the team came through when they accepted an invite to Marbula One 2019/20, choosing Sublime and Limelime to represent them. [2] This was a controversial decision with criticism of Sublime's recent performances mounting from the fans, with him gaining the nickname "Subpar". With Sublime then only scoring one point, as well as three last place results (including a DNF), talk of him being dropped from the lineup for a younger marble such as Limelime to grow.
