India Lee got into triathlon as something new to try in 2013. By the summer of 2016, she was ETU European Champion. Coming from a running background, which saw her gain a scholarship in the USA, there is a lot of potential for more success.
India was born in Basingstoke, and is now based in Winchester. She works with Nick Anderson and Richard Stannard as her coaches. 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 big break through was winning the ETU European title in Lisbon, a team effort which was supported by other British athletes. Just three weeks prior to that, she'd demonstrated her ability to win by taking an ITU World Cup title in Cagliari, Italy.
India's interesting fact: "I can demolish a packet of chocolate buttons in seconds, and have 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.
