De­sire to suc­ceed

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

15 IN­DIA Biesse-Fit­ton has been on skis since she could stand, which means she has been ski­ing for 14 years.

In­dia comes across as your av­er­age, quiet, shy­ish teenager, but her de­ter­mi­na­tion to suc­ceed is fe­ro­cious.

Rep­re­sent­ing Ash­wood School in the 2014 In­ter­schools, In­dia won the Di­vi­sion 2 Fe­male Mul­ti­class Alpine race.

She is also a cham­pion swimmer and has just been se­lected into the Aus­tralian Swimming Par­a­lympic De­vel­op­ment Team.

Mel­bourne is home, but when she was younger, In­dia and her fam­ily spent four win­ter sea­sons liv­ing and school­ing on Mt Buller.

Shaky Knees and Wood Run

In­dia has been lucky enough to ski in the USA, in­clud­ing Win­ter Park and Steam­boat, Beaver Creek in Colorado; Park City, Utah; Sil­ver­star, Canada and Niseko, Ja­pan. Fun with my fam­ily and rac­ing against my brothers, she’s still faster than Flynn but older brother Zach now beats her.

In­ter­schools rac­ing. Swimming and walk­ing my dog Ruby.

Happy, fam­ily, fun.
