Shweta Rathore is elated about it and says,"This is a proud moment for me and my country.I am vigorously taking all types of training to win the title at the championship.  But I am sorry to add that our government is not paying any attention to provide us major support. All government departments be it health or sports ministry is only after the film stars for appointing them a brand ambassadors. At least these ministries should promote people like us and appoint them as the brand ambassador instead. This will be an additional feature for the winning sports person who bags award and makes the country proud. Even the awards and rewards go to the glamour industry or again Film stars only. Every sport should be highlighted and promoted in its deserved perspective. Body building is a costly sports affair. Without our government's help and support, we alone cannot be well prepared and achieve better results for our country."
