India Lee got into triathlon as something new to try in 2013. By the summer of 2016, she was ETU European Champion. She is part of the UK Sport Lottery Funded squad based in Bath.
India was born in Basingstoke, and is now based in Bath, where she trains with 2018 ITU world champion, Vicky Holland. She attended the University of Southampton and then Iowa State University, where she studied Sports Science and was part of the successful Athletics squad in Iowa. She was encouraged to try triathlon in 2013 as a change from running and fell in love with the sport.
India's triathlon breakthrough was winning the ETU European title in Lisbon in 2016, a team effort which was supported by British athletes including Lucy Hall and Heather Sellars. Just three weeks prior to that, she'd demonstrated her ability to win by taking an ITU World Cup title in Cagliari, Italy.
Cagliari again featured as a highlight in 2018 when she finished third in the ITU World Cup event. She moved from Winchester to train in Bath during 2018, and ended the year with an IRONMAN 70.3 victory in Weymouth, demonstrating her versatility.
India's says she ‘can demolish a packet of chocolate buttons in seconds and has a weird ability to fix things.’ Other sporting success in the family includes an uncle, David Richards, who won the World Rally Championships in 1981.
