A Cranbrook woman goes for Olympic glory Thursday.
21-year-old India Sherret is competing in the Ladies Ski Cross event at the Pyeongchang Winter Games.
It’s already a remarkable story for Sherret who fought back after taking the 2015/16 season off to improve her mental health.
In January, Sherret landed on the podium at a World Cup in Sweden, earning a bronze medal and a spot on Team Canada.
She made her World Cup debut last December in Germany.
Sherret and the 21 women pack begin the Freestyle Skiing Ski Cross event 6 PM MST.
