A ski cross racer from Cranbrook has been named to the Canadian National team.
India Sherret says it didn’t come as a surprise after a strong 2017-18 season on the World Cup circuit.
“I was fairly certain I would be named to the team this year, I mean I had some really exceptional results for my first year on the World Cup circuit so I wasn’t really questioning that I guess.” explains Sherret. “At the same time it’s always nice to sort of see it there on paper and be able to share it with everyone.”
India Sherret placed third in a World Cup Ladies’ Ski Cross event in January 2018.
The 21-year old is back on the hill after crashing in her Olympic debut at the Pyeongchang Games.
Sherret says it’s mind-blowing how fast she’s recovered.
“I got back in the gym a little over a month ago, I had like two weeks in the gym and then I was back on skis.” says Sherret. “Everything progressed so well and so quickly just because there were no complication from my injury so it was great.”
